NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - A strong spring storm is expected to brush southeastern Rhode Island with light snow and strong winds, while weather forecasters are warning of potentially life-threatening conditions at sea.

The National Weather Service says Newport and neighboring communities could see an inch or two of snow by early Wednesday afternoon with wind gusts of up to 50 mph. No school closings are reported in the state, but several towns and cities have imposed parking bans including Middletown and Bristol.

No major flight delays or cancellations are reported at T.F. Green Airport.

The Weather Service says conditions will be dangerous in waters off New England with hurricane-force wind gusts and seas exceeding 25 feet in some areas.

The service has issued blizzard warnings for Cape Cod and eastern Maine.
