Midwest Northeast US bracing for another winter storm

Waking up to the Superbowl victory was one thing, however, New Englanders waking up to another winter storm is another as more than a foot of snow could fall on the already snow-packed region.

It was less than a week ago when a vast area of the northeast was weighed down with between 1 and 3 feet of snow.

The latest weather update from National Weather Service warns of an additional 9 to 16 inches of snow.

Meteorologist Matt Doody said, “New Englanders were used to this during the winter.” The additional powder is expected to deepen off the coast of southern New England as it hit Boston, Hartford, Providence, New Hampshire and Vermont.

More snow is expected for nearly every part of the region from New York to Ohio.

The turbulent weather has already been cause for the cancellation of more than 2,000 Midwest flights on Sunday and an additional 2,300 flights on Monday alone, of which about 300 were at Boston’s Logan Airport.

Hundreds of public schools were closed resulting in canceled classes, while power outages were felt by more than 10,000 Sunday evening in Illinois and 8,000 in northern Indiana.
