Heavy Snow Continues in the Northeast Feb 16, 2017

Heavy snow has been falling through the Northeast with New England once again seeing the brunt of the heaviest accumulations. Most of the region has seen more than 6″ of snowfall, with several areas above a foot in Western Maine.

Winter Storm Warnings continue for parts of Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire. As cold air continues to funnel across the Great Lakes, lake effect snowfall continues. Lake Effect Snow Warnings and Advisories remain in effect around Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.

Another 6″ of accumulation is possible in Down East Maine, Northern Vermont and near Lake Erie. Lighter totals are expected near Boston and Cape Cod.

The low pressure center responsible for the heavy snow is moving away from the region into the Atlantic Ocean. As a surface trough slowly spins east of New England, snowfall will gradually decrease. Lake effect snow squalls will diminish on Friday morning as high pressure moves in from the west, changing wind direction.
