Another nor'easter, another foot-plus of snow forecast for central Maine

Another nor'easter, another foot-plus of snow forecast for central Maine

Blizzard conditions are possible and power outages are a threat for parts of Rhode Island, eastern Massachusetts, New Hampshire and ME, which are under the Winter Storm Watch from Monday evening to Tuesday afternoon, he said.

New York City, under a winter weather advisory, will be spared the heaviest snow, but accumulations of 2 to 4 inches are expected.

The National Weather Service in NY warned that during the storm's peak, snow could fall at a rate of up to 7.6 cm an hour, making travel treacherous.

Although the latest storm was not expected to bring as many power outages as a nor'easter last week because the snow is lighter and fluffier, more than 150,000 customers in MA lost power by late Tuesday morning.

Snowfall could total as much as 1 inch on the Shore, but in most areas it will probably be less than half an inch, he said. The cleanup from the previous two storms to batter the winter-weary northeast is still ongoing, as fallen trees downed power lines and left tens of thousands in the dark.

The Boston public schools also will be closed Tuesday, as the city's major Marty Walsh declared a snow emergency.

With the heavy snow and potential for icy conditions, passengers who must travel should use caution when on platforms and provide additional time to travel to and from commuter rail stations. Boston, Cape Cod and Portland, Maine, could see wind gusts as high as 65 miles per hour and blizzard-like conditions. Only minor coastal flooding is predicted.

By 4 p.m., National Weather Service radar showed the back edge of the storm was nearly clear of the Triad and focusing on the east. Snow, or a mixture of snow and sleet, was forecast for eastern Wake, eastern Harnett and all of Johnston counties.

"Plan on slippery road conditions, especially untreated surfaces, including during the Tuesday morning commute", their statement said. The Northeast is bracing for its third nor'easter in fewer than two weeks.

By 6am, we'll have widespread snow, and this is the time when we'll have some strong winds.

"A very active weather pattern will bring several opportunities for rain and snow to the state beginning Tuesday", stated the National Weather Service. The second dropped snow by the foot in New Jersey and across the lower Hudson River Valley.

A blizzarding nor'easter made its way to MA overnight on Tuesday, and meteorologists say this snowy system will pack a punch. "They didn't know where else to go", Gehl said.

"It's not going to end Tuesday", Ekster warned, adding that it should continue snowing - it may taper off a bit - through the day Wednesday.
