The National Weather Service issued widespread wind and flood watches in anticipation of an “impressive” storm system expected to hit southern New England late Sunday.

Parts of coastal New England could see maximum wind gusts of 50 to 70 miles per hour, and heavy rain could also result in flooding, especially in western New England, according to the service’s forecast Sunday morning. Meteorologist Dave Epstein says power outages are “virtually guaranteed” for southern New England due to the heavy winds.

The National Weather Service said Sunday afternoon that “confidence is rising” that hurricane-strength wind gusts would impact the region, particularly in southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
