PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Snow is topping 15 inches in parts of southern Maine and is expected to reach 2 feet in others as winds of up to 60 mph lash coastal parts of the state.

Meteorologists for the National Weather Service in Gray say the high total late Tuesday morning was 15.9 inches in Portland. Wind gusts of 45 to 55 mph are common in coastal areas, with Bar Harbor reaching 60 mph. Meteorologists said the storm is beginning to weaken, but steady snow would continue through the afternoon. Northern Maine is also getting high winds and is beginning to get heavy snow, but will likely top out around 10 inches.

Blizzard warnings remain in effect for coastal parts of the state. Lewiston, Rockport and Yarmouth all report snow totals above 10 inches.
