    (AP/NECN: Scot Yount, Plymouth, Mass.) - Just one week after the historic blizzard hit New England, much of the area saw more snow on Sunday morning.

    Heavy snow and strong winds were expected to blow across the New England coast and drop as much as 10 inches on parts of the region still buried by last week's storm.

    A winter storm warning was in effect Sunday for the Boston area, where the National Weather Service said 4 to 8 inches of snow could fall by night. Strong winds were expected to accompany the snow, gusting up to 55 mph along the coast.

    In Rhode Island, Providence could expect 6 to 8 inches while central Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire could get up to 6.

    Farther north, a blizzard watch was in effect for parts of Down East and Northeast Maine, where 10 inches of snow was possible along with wind gusts up to 60 mph.
