Blizzard pummels Boston as 3rd nor’easter tears through Northeast

Latest news

    It’s official: Boston is in the middle of a blizzard as the Northeast gets slammed with the third nor’easter in nearly two weeks.

    Over 1,400 flights have been canceled in the Northeast and Amtrak has suspended service between Boston and New York City.

    The heavy snow bands made their way through both Rhode Island and Massachusetts this morning.

    Winds reached 68 mph in eastern Massachusetts and 47 mph in Boston.

    Thundersnow — when thunder and lightning occur during a snowstorm — was even reported in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

    Snow fell in New York City this morning but it’s already come to an end.

    Snow is ongoing in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Maine, as well as on Long Island, New York.

    Gusty winds will remain most of the day throughout the Northeast with the strongest winds in New England.

    Evening rush hour in Boston will likely be messy, with travel severely restricted and wind gusts reaching 60 mph.

    By Wednesday morning, lingering light snow will continue for most of northern New York and into New England. Maine will see the heaviest snowfalls and the Northeast will experience temperatures and wind chills that make March feel a lot more like February.

    As of 10 a.m., Massachusetts has seen 6 inches of snow and Long Island and western Connecticut have 7 inches.

    Some areas of New England could see up to 2 feet of snow over the next 24 hours.

    Before the storm reached the Northeast, it first pummeled the South. Up to 18 inches of snow fell in West Virginia, up to 11.8 inches fell in Virginia and North Carolina even saw 7 inches in some areas.
