25 year anniversary of the 'Storm of the Century'


New England braced Tuesday for its third nor'easter in less than two weeks, which threatens to hit the region with as much as 2 feet of snow.

Blizzard warnings are in effect through Tuesday morning for parts of MA and Rhode Island, with winter storm warnings in effect for much of the Northeast.

Winter storm warnings are in place across parts of western Virginia and North Carolina, where 3 to 5 inches of snow are expected to accumulate Monday, with up to 8 inches possible in some isolated areas.

Now Monroe County is under a winter weather advisory as the National Weather Service says another storm could drop up to five inches of new snow.

Most of the state is expected to see upwards of 10 inches of snow, with the highest snowfall totals predicted from Taunton down through Cape Cod. "Not necessarily in terms of snow, although they may get a few inches more, but the issue across far southeast Mass.is it's going to be a wetter snow", said Frank.

The storm was expected to last through most of Tuesday, disrupting road and air travel.

In Rhode Island, the storm closed schools and businesses across the state, knocked out power and made driving treacherous.

But the Big Apple wasn't pummeled with heavy snow accumulations, after earlier storms brought slush and ice to the region. Wind gusts reached 69 miles per hour in places as much of coastal Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire and ME bore the brunt of the storm. Some coastal flooding at high tide is also possible.

However, he did his best work during the playoffs, where he caught 33 balls for 348 yards with two touchdowns in three games. As for the Patriots, they should still be fine at wide receiver for next season even with Amendola's absence.

Travel conditions are expected to be hard Tuesday morning, as almost 44 million people are under winter weather advisory or warning. Portland's average is 50.4 inches, but so far this season, 75.5 inches of snow has fallen, News Center Maine reported.

Some school systems held classes at the start of the day, but announced early dismissals in advance of the storm.

People should be aware of the increased potential for downed electrical wires caused by heavy snow and high winds, Durand said.

Though the first day of spring is technically marked on the calendar for March 20, Root said it may still be a while before winter checks out for good. Check back here as we continue to update conditions throughout the storm.

This Winter Storm Warning remains in effect from about 11 p.m. March 12 until 8 a.m. on March 14.

The state of MA is preparing for its third Nor'Easter this month.

"We are prepping for the [storm] that is coming in", she said, by making contingency plans with emergency management officials and lining up work crews that can respond in the event of outages or other issues.
