2018 boston snow storms Nor Easter 3 Brings Blizzard Warnings Up To Two Feet of Snow Possible

The National Weather Service said there were blizzard conditions near Boston as the nation's third nor'easter in two weeks pummeled the region Tuesday.

This week's storm was the most significant for southern New England, where nearly 30 inches of snow fell in MA.

The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement through 8 p.m. today as snow showers could create slippery road conditions and reduce visibility.

Storms on March 2 and 7 left at least 9 people dead across the region, some 2 million homes and businesses without power, and flooding in the streets of Boston. A lot of them lost their service during the storm, but some haven't had power since the first destructive nor'easter roared in March 2.

The blizzard warning means sustained winds of greater than 35 miles per hour along with visibility of less than a quarter mile for prolonged periods, according to the weather service.

Last Thursday, another storm dumped about a foot of heavy snow throughout much of the state and knocked out power to around 27,000 Mainers, mostly in York County.

"We are freezing", James, 39, said. The flight-tracking site FlightAware reported more than 1,500 cancelled flights on Tuesday.

The storm was slowly tapering off overnight into Wednesday, but it left about 218,000 power outages in MA as of Tuesday evening, according to the state's Emergency Management Agency.


Amtrak suspended service from Boston to New York's Penn Station Tuesday due to inclement weather.

"We have been extremely fortunate that no one has been seriously injured as a result of this storm as of this point", Colonel Ann Assumpico, Superintendent of the Rhode Island State Police said.

Martha's Vineyard Shipyard shared a video of the powerful winds just before noon on Tuesday. Accumulations are expected to be minimal in New York City and New Jersey, but the hardest hit areas could see upwards of a foot of snow.

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

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. But Secretary of State William Gardner and Attorney General Gordon MacDonald said under state law, town meeting elections must go on. More than a foot of snow was expected in parts of CT.

As of 6 p.m., snowfall totals topped more than 20 inches in Providence County, R.I., and Worcester County, Mass., for the previous 5 hours.
