Winter Storm Skylar Expected To Bring Blizzard Conditions

The third nor'easter to hit parts of the USA northeast in two weeks was expected to start late on Monday and Amtrak said it would suspend service on Tuesday between Boston and NY, as the storm could bring high winds, a foot or more of snow and power outages.

Blizzard warnings are in effect through Tuesday morning for parts of MA and Rhode Island, with winter storm warnings in effect for much of the Northeast.

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.

Snowfall will begin tonight between 9 and 11 p.m., Meteorologist Kim Buttrick at the National Weather Service in Taunton, Massachusetts said early today. Meteorologists said Tuesday morning that automated observing sites in Hyannis, Falmouth and Plymouth recorded three consecutive hours of blizzard conditions despite some missing observations due to a power loss.

While snowfall was negligible on much of Cape Cod during the early hours of the latest storm to hit the Northeast, forecasters said the nor'easter could dump as much as 2 feet. "Not necessarily in terms of snow, although they may get a few inches more, but the issue across far southeast it's going to be a wetter snow", said Frank.

This storm's heavy snow could down trees weakened by the last two storms and bring a fresh wave of power outages, officials warned.

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

As the main cause of death from antimicrobial resistance, TB also poses a threat to global health security. Had we continued at with the same pace, it would have taken us another 40 years to achieve the target.

Many Rhode Island state offices and schools have been closed for Tuesday.

During a press conference Monday evening, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker said the coast is expected to see heavier snow than other parts of the state. Far eastern and southeastern CT could see gusts up to 40 miles per hour.

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.

Snow showers will linger into Wednesday and could cause some additional accumulation, especially in the hills.

Eight to 12 inches of snow or more could fall in eastern and northeastern CT.

This will be the third nor'easter in less than two weeks.

"Travel will be very hard to impossible, including during the evening commute on Tuesday", forecasters wrote, adding that gusting winds will limit visibility with drifting and blowing snow. But Secretary of State William Gardner and Attorney General Gordon MacDonald said under state law, town meeting elections must go on. A winter weather advisory was issued starting at 8 p.m. for all of New Jersey north of Burlington County and Northeastern Pennsylvania along the Delaware River north of Bucks County. Little or no snow accumulation is now forecast for Philadelphia and Washington.
