Yet another blizzard buries storm-battered parts of Northeast

More snow for winter-weary New York area as 3rd nor'easter wallops region Latest nor'easter buries Maine under snow

A nor'easter that could deliver up to 2 feet of snow to some areas socked New England on Tuesday, bringing blizzard conditions to coastal MA and Rhode Island, blanketing highways with fluffy snow and knocking out power to tens of thousands of utility customers.

Other areas that were severely affected in the previous two storms, including parts of New York, New Jersey and Maryland will see only one-to-four inches of snow this time around, Chenard said.

"This storm won't be as widespread as before", said Marc Chenard, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland.

A plow clears Marginal Street in Boston, Tuesday, March 13, 2018. The first in early March struck New England with incredible wind gusts up to 97 miles per hour and knocked out power to 2 million homes and businesses. By mid-afternoon, snowfall amounts ranging from 4 inches to 10 inches had been reported in scattered locations throughout ME, while some locations in New Hampshire had gotten more than a foot.

About 140,000 customers were without power in MA on Wednesday morning, while Maine, Rhode Island and CT were also dealing with scattered outages.

"We are freezing", the 39-year-old said. Amtrak said it would restore most service between Boston and New York City on Wednesday.

Suzanne Krauss, director of the Maine Emergency Management Agency, said Tuesday in a prepared statement that travel and visibility will be the biggest challenges posed by the storm.

Some areas of New England could see up to 2 feet of snow over the next 24 hours.

The officer behind the wheel drives up to the fallen tree to show it stretching across Bournedale Road. "The falling snow combined with strong winds will result in blizzard conditions at times for coastal ME and the seacoast of New Hampshire".

Snow fell in New York City this morning but it's already come to an end.

In Kent County, Coventry experienced the largest amount of snow at 15 inches.

Gov. Charlie Baker of MA said officials were not calling out the National Guard as it had in the earlier storms because the tides would be low and any flooding was likely to be minor.

In New Hampshire, where as much as 14 inches of snow was forecast, the storm was wreaking havoc with the age-old town meeting tradition. State law requires at least 180 classroom days.

More than a foot of snow is expected in parts of CT, where Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is urging people to "take it slow and remember their winter weather driving skills".

Commuters wait in the snow on a subway platform in Brooklyn, New York, on Tuesday.

At one point, more than a quarter-million people were without power in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
