Just days after a blizzard pounded the Northeast, a new storm is impacting parts of New England. Heavy snow and strong winds are likely for portions of central New England into Thursday. Additional snow accumulations up to a foot or locally more are likely.
The Snowy Details:
A strong low pressure system that produced a tornado outside of Houston, Texas on Tuesday will race to the Northeast coast early Thursday. The system will merge with northern jet stream energy to produce another Gulf of Maine cyclone.
Expect six to 12 inches of new snowfall in the Adirondacks and from the mountains of interior New England east through western and coastal Maine. The heaviest snow will miss the Boston metro area with perhaps a slushy inch or so possible.
The swath of heavy snow will continue into the Canadian Maritimes. Accumulations exceeding a foot (30 cm) are expected on the Gaspé Peninsula.
Winds will also
For some residents in Maine, they are still digging out from recent heavy snows.
