    The nor’easter that brought over two feet of snow to eastern Massachusetts, with Wilmington ringing in at 31 inches, Uxbridge at 27.8 inches, and Methuen with 28.3 inches, is continuing to bring snow and powerful winds to northern New England over the course of the day Wednesday.

    Tuesday at noon, Boston officially reached blizzard criteria, and for the month of March, Boston has reached 21.5 inches of snowfall.

    I guess that makes up for February’s low snowfall of 8.3 inches and we’re only halfway through the month of March. As the snowfall continues in far northern New England, and as the nor’easter continues to slide northward over Nova Scotia.

    We’re not out of the woods just yet as snow squalls will pop up over this evening, stretching into southern New England and lasting into the overnight hours, but wrapping up before the morning commute, so don’t be surprised with another inch or two or three over the snow that we just received in southern New England, with the Berkshires locally seeing more due to the higher terrain.

    For northern New England, from north to south, along the spine of the Green Mountains in Vermont, we could see between 9 to 12 inches, and a widespread 6 to 12 inches in northern New Hampshire, and northern interior Maine, 1 to 3 inches for southern Maine through Thursday. High temperatures to round out the work week remain in the lower 40s south, 30s north under a mix of sun and clouds.

    This weekend will feature sunshine, but slightly colder for St. Patrick’s Day with highs in the mid to upper 30s, with Sunday featuring a slight warm-up, back in the lower 40s.

    As we look ahead towards the next work week, Monday looks pleasant with highs near 40 under plentiful sunshine, but Tuesday and Wednesday could bring another storm to the region. At this point, the forecast looks to bring the fourth round of snow with the potential for rain along the immediate southern coastline.

    Like our last system, we will know more as we get closer.
