Third Nor’easter In 10 Days To Slam New England With Snow

Winter doesn’t officially end until March 21 — and the season seems to be making sure we all remember that. Yet another nor’easter is on its way, and this one seems likely to dump quite a bit of snow on Boston and the rest of Massachusetts.

Southeast Massachusetts could get up to two feet of snow, according to the National Weather Service (NWS) Boston office, with up to 18 inches expected in Boston.

“Add in some wind and Nor’easter Number 3 will qualify as a ‘bomb cyclone blizzard’ … as Old Man Winter heads into middle-March,” meteorologist Ryan Maue said on Twitter.

This will make for three winter storms in two weeks.


“This event will be a little colder, confining the heavier, wetter snow to coastal areas, where winds gusting to 40-50 mph will lead to power outages, and possible blizzard or near blizzard conditions,” Weather Channel meteorologist Carl Parker said in a statement emailed to Business Insider. Some coastal flooding at high tide is also possible.

Blizzard warnings are in effect through Tuesday morning for parts of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, with winter storm warnings in effect for much of the Northeast. A snow emergency is in effect for the city of Boston starting at 7 p.m. ET Monday. Whiteout conditions could make travel dangerous.

In New York City, some snow should fall between Monday night and Tuesday morning, according the New York office of the NWS, though the city isn’t likely to see more than 4 inches.
