Although the nor'easter that dumped more than a foot of snow on much of the region has moved up to the Canadian Maritimes, heavy snow showers could hit Southern New England again today, according to the National Weather Service.

The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for the entire coast of Maine, New Hampshire and most of MA. New England is getting walloped by the storm, with blizzard conditions and even higher accumulations. James and her four children spent the day eating baked goods she made before the storm and hoping the lights and heat would come back soon.

"I feel that we haven't really seen this type of storm since 2015", Democratic Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said at a Monday night news conference. Organizers were scrambling to establish video links to speakers whose planes were delayed or canceled, said Rotella, chief medical officer with the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine.

"I think it may be one of the last ones so I'm out here appreciating it", Gesler said.

The third major storm in two weeks has lashed the Northeast with hurricane-force winds, heavy snow and widespread power outages and now millions of people are facing yet another cleanup.

About 1,550 flights were canceled Tuesday, a lot of them scheduled to come to or from Boston Logan International Airport, according to FlightAware.

Boston's Logan Airport officially picked up 14.8 inches.

The blustery weather in the Northeast forced the cancellations of over 1,400 flights and Amtrak has suspended service between Boston and New York City.

Vernon Township called off classes for a 12th time Tuesday after a snow storm dropped approximately 6 inches (15 centimeters) of snow across northwestern New Jersey. 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.

Boston experienced blizzard conditions Tuesday, with officials estimating almost 2 feet (0.61 meters) of snow fell in parts of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Maine. "It is entirely possible that we could get to 2 feet in this storm in some spots; it's also possible nobody hits 18 inches", he said. "I know folks are tired with power outages, but hang in there with us".

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.

Prior to Tuesday, Portland had 75.5 inches of snow this winter, roughly two feet more than it normally has this time of year. "The falling snow combined with strong winds will result in blizzard conditions at times for coastal ME and the seacoast of New Hampshire".

Wind gusts near 70 miles per hour were reported on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

"It hasn't stopped snowing or blowing and I'd guess we have around 10 inches so far". "The groundhog was right".
