After midweek storm, more snow is on the way

Warren Dawson | 16 February, 2017, 01:20

The forecast looms as the region continues to dig out after a storm Sunday and Monday left 24.2 inches of snow at Bangor International Airport - the fourth-highest amount ever recorded there over a two-day period, according to weather service meteorologist Maureen Hastings.

A major winter storm slammed into northern NY and New England on Sunday.

Heavy snow fell across New York State and New England on Monday, closing schools and government offices, snarling roads and canceling flights.

The National Weather Service has called this the wettest winter season there in more than 100 years.

Schools around the region delayed or canceled classes yesterday, including in Boston and in New York state, from Albany to areas outside New York City. The risky conditions canceled hundreds of flights into and out of many major Northeast airports. "It's a big snowstorm, but nothing we haven't seen before either".

Courts were closed throughout New Hampshire and MA, prompting a one-day delay in the start of jury selection for the double murder trial of former New England Patriots football player Aaron Hernandez.

The Northeast is digging out from the latest blast of winter weather that dumped well over two feet of snow on some areas and made travel treacherous.

Bus Crash in Taiwan Leaves 32 People Killed, 16 Injured
Taiwanese television footage showed the bus careening toward a road barrier at a highway curve before flipping on its side. Thirty-two people, all Taiwanese, were confirmed dead and the remaining passengers were sent to hospitals for treatment.

Friday's cleanup meant turning the lights back on in many places, including Cape Cod, where a wind gust of 70 miles per hour was recorded. A third storm is predicted to hit the same region Wednesday night but will not be as strong as its predecessors.

In some areas, this will be the second storm in less than a week to unleash a blizzard and over a foot of snow.

"The weight of the snow, combined with fierce, howling winds will be more than enough to bring down tree limbs and power lines", said AccuWeather meteorologist Kyle Elliott.

The storm was blamed for at least one death. This means that the rain will precede the storm and likely push all the way into Southern New Hampshire tomorrow afternoon.

Utility crews worked Friday restoring power outages on Cape Cod.

Some 963 US flights were canceled on Monday.
