A third nor’easter in 11 days is slamming the Northeast today and this latest storm is expected to hit New England especially hard.

Residents of Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine woke up to a blizzard warning.

Over 1,400 flights have been canceled within, into or out of the United States.

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.

More than 35,000 residents from Kentucky to North Carolina and up through Maine were without power this morning.

Snowfall started in the New York City, New Jersey and western Connecticut region this morning but is expected to be over by noon.

On Long Island, New York, Suffolk County executive Steve Bellone this morning urged residents to stay off the roads if possible.

Heavy snow bands also made their way this morning into Long Island, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

Snowfall rates could reach 2 inches an hour as wind gusts approach 50 mph. The snow will continue in eastern Long Island and New England throughout the afternoon.

Evening rush hour in Boston likely will be a mess, 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.

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