BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - Officials are taking precautions for a weekend snowstorm in cities and towns along Connecticut’s shore, which is expected to be the hardest hit part of the state.

Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim has declared a snow emergency for Connecticut’s largest city effective Saturday. Parking bans will be in effect, and vehicles parked in prohibited areas may be towed. The city’s emergency operations center will be open.

Stamford officials on Friday were considering declaring a snow emergency. New Haven officials were to meet Friday to review updated forecasts and finalize plans for snow clearing. New London leaders were preparing for flooding and storm surges.

The National Weather Service expects 2 to 8 inches of snow in shoreline areas and lesser amounts inland. Coastal flooding advisories and watches have been issued.
