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'sBoston 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 warningswere 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.

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.
