In addition to snow accumulations, flooding is a major concern for Massachusetts residents living along the coast.
In places like Plymouth, 4-7 inches of heavy, wet snow is expected to fall during the major winter storm bearing down on the area. But to make matters worse, high tide is expected right during the height of the storm, around 1:30 p.m., and that’s raising concerns along the South Shore.
