It's been less than a week since the last nor'easter that brought nearly a foot of snow in many areas and power outages, and another one is right around the corner.

The National Weather Service's Boston office is forecasting 8 inches to a foot of snow for parts of CT through western MA and up to 18 inches for eastern MA and Rhode Island.

"Based on forecasts, we're anticipating that we're going to have some added damage to our system, particularly in areas where snow will be heaviest and winds will be highest", said Eversource spokesman Michael Durand.

Although the latest storm was not expected to bring as many power outages as a nor'easter last week because the snow is lighter and fluffier, more than 150,000 customers in MA lost power by late Tuesday morning.

In Rhode Island, the storm closed schools and businesses across the state, knocked out power and made driving treacherous. Winter storm warnings were in effect for parts of Virginia and West Virginia, where heavy snow already was reported Monday. Travel was shut down due to 40 miles per hour wind gusts creating drifts up to five feet, risky whiteout conditions, and wind chills.

Trey Burton was best tight-window target of all TEs in 2017
In his second season in Jacksonville in 2015, Robinson caught 80 passes for 1,400 yards, and an NFL-leading 14 touchdowns. The Bears will sign the former Philadelphia Eagle to a four-year, $32 million deal once the league year officially opens.

Minor coastal flooding is also expected on the MA coast on Tuesday morning.

"As soon as the snow stops and the wind stops blowing, we will be pushing the utilities to give people a sense of when the power will come back on", Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker told reporters on Tuesday."They will move quickly and aggressively to deal with this once the snow stops".

The last time there was a quick succession of nor'easters was also when three formed over 10 days in late January and February 2015, according to National Weather Service forecaster David Roth, who keeps a database of such storms with high winds.

The state's third nor'easter in less than two weeks will once again develop to the south of the state and could bring snowfall rates of 1 to 3 inches per hour.

Very cold air will then pour into the eastern USA behind the storm, leading to very cold temperatures for March to continue into mid-week all the way down to Florida.

Irish miss out on NCAA tournament, will play Hampton in NIT
For the first time in his four years at Notre Dame , New Bedford's Bonzie Colson II won't play in the NCAA Tournament. The Irish will instead be a #1 seed in the NIT and host Hampton in the 1st round Tuesday at 9pm.

"Snow is expected to start falling some time early this evening", Accuweather meteorologist Jordan Root said at about 4 p.m. Monday.

"We're not anxious about the tides the way we were last week", Baker said. If it tracks further away from the coast, which is also unlikely, the area could be spared any snow.

Unlike last week's storm, the snowfall is not expected to be heavy or wet. Tree branches could fall.
