Blizzard bears down on New England, snarling travel

The second scenario as predicted by the Euro model will see the storm head away from the coast after hitting the Carolinas in the south

The storm rapidly strengthened over 24 hours into early Tuesday and underwent bombogenesis - caused when plunging barometric pressure deeply intensifies a storm, AccuWeather said. Meanwhile, the storm has been disrupting road and air travel.

More power outages are possible, but they are not expected to be as widespread as last week. The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a blizzard warning for much of the MA coast, a winter storm warning for most of New England and a winter weather advisory for portions of New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

"We're not out of winter yet, that's for sure", Paul Knight, of Portland, said as snow accumulated on his eyebrows during a stroll.

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.

Blizzard warnings had been issued for much of the region, foretelling "dangerous to impossible" travel conditions with strong winds and heavy snow dimming visibility into Tuesday evening or early Wednesday, the National Weather Service said. "I just hope everyone is safe and in a warm place".

The Mourne, Massachusetts, police department shared dashcam video of a tree falling just up the road from where one of their cruisers was headed, CBS Boston reports. "But there will be snow showers that will continue through the evening and possibly overnight in some areas". "It seems like this one is going to be a big one".

The Portland International Jetport has had 75.5 inches of snow, far above the normal for the date of 51.8 inches, with another 12 to 18 inches on the way, said James Brown, of the National Weather Service.

The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency said that snow could fall at a rate of 1-3 inches per hour. Bangor also could get between 12 and 18 inches, while northern Aroostook County is expected to get between 6 and 12 inches.

The National Weather Service's Boston office is forecasting 8 to 18 inches of snow for parts of CT through western MA and up to 18 inches for Rhode Island. More than 45 million people are under some kind of a weather warning or advisory in the Northeast.

Boston and eastern MA, as well as Rhode Island, could get a foot and a half of snow, with less to the west of the city.

It was due to cross the Down East coastline around 10 or 11 a.m., arriving in Bangor shortly thereafter as the storm slowly moves southwest to northeast, added Vic Nouhan, a meteorologist with the weather service in Caribou.

In Rhode Island, the snow didn't stop residents from getting to church.
