New Englanders Prepare to Endure Another Snowstorm

More than a foot of snow is expected to blast the region again this weekend




    New Englanders still digging out from three major storms that left 6 feet or more of snow in many areas are bracing for what's expected to be another punishing winter blast.

    The National Weather Service has posted a blizzard warning for eastern Massachusetts and coastal New Hampshire and Maine ahead of a storm expected to intensify Saturday night and last into Sunday.

    Forecasters say the storm could bring more than a foot of fresh snow, 70 mph wind gusts and a coastal flooding threat.

    The Boston-area public transit system has struggled to maintain operations during the recent storms. It says it will shut down all service on Sunday.

    Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker is urging residents to stay off the road during the height of the storm.
