The latest nor'easter to blast through New England brought yet another round of heavy snow, high wind, and blizzard conditions.  Coastal flooding, snow-covered highways, and power outages brought much of the region to a halt. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/973617045991378945 This winter storm brought the highest snow totals of the season in many parts of Massachusetts.  In fact, Boston set a record for the 14.5 inches of snow that fell in the city Tuesday. Not only was it a daily record, but it was also a monthly record!  Boston's weather history books will record March 13, 2018 as the all-time snowiest March day.  The previous all-time snowiest March day was March 19, 1956 when 13.2 inches of snow fell.  Weather records have been kept in Boston since 1872.  For the season, Boston has now picked up nearly 5 feet of snow. Other New England cities, such as Portland and Concord, have accumulated around 7 feet of snow so far this winter!  Considering it is March, more snow is probable.  With that in mind, be sure to follow WeatherNation on Twitter and Facebook for the latest weather forecasts and information. -Meteorologist Joe Astolfi
