Nor'easter Still Smacking New England
UPDATED 6:15 PM EST, March 8, 2013
UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, John Bateman
The same coastal low pressure that brought heavy snow accumulation to parts of the Mid-Atlantic continues to dump fresh powder on eastern New England. Besides the snow, strong winds are buffeting the coast as well.
A coastal low pressure center has been catapulting Atlantic moisture into southern New England. Combined with cold air in place, this moisture is falling as snow, accumulating quickly in locations. Foxboro, Mass., got 24.7 inches, Staffordsville, Conn., got 23 inches while Manchester, Conn., got walloped with 18.5 inches.
Winter Storm Warnings continue in eastern Massachusetts, northern Rhode Island, southern New Hampshire, and northeastern Connecticut, where 1 to 3 inches of additional accumulation are possible through the evening. Winter Weather Advisories continue for southern Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts. Boston and Providence, R.I., are all included in these winter weather alerts.
Wind gusts are subsiding along the Northeast Coast. Following gusts of 50 to 60 mph, gusts this evening are down to 45 to 50 mph at places like Scituate and Provincetown, Mass.
The storm will swirl out into the Atlantic, leaving a quiet and warmer weekend ahead.
