New England on Alert for Potential Blizzard

A new storm may take a northward turn and rapidly strengthen Monday night into Tuesday, perhaps bringing blizzard conditions to part of New England.

In the wake of the storm that brought heavy snow and drenching rain to southern and eastern New England on Saturday, an Alberta Clipper storm will sweep eastward across the Midwest this weekend.

The next stop for the clipper storm will be the mid-Atlantic by Monday, where widespread snow and travel disruptions are possible.

The storm is forecast to rapidly strengthen and cause snow to expand into eastern New England Monday night into Tuesday.

How quickly the storm ramps up will determine the western extent of snow, strength of the wind and blowing and drifting snow.

While the storm from Saturday may have been a mere nuisance to travelers and a delight to skiers, the storm Monday night into Tuesday could be far more disruptive in terms of travel and daily activities from Providence, Rhode Island to Boston, Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Portland, Maine.

Snow and wind from the offshore storm could reach as far west as New York City; Hartford, Connecticut; Worcester, Massachusetts, and Concord, New Hampshire, during Monday night and Tuesday.

The storm early next week will have fresh cold air to work with and is more likely to bring snow right to the southern coastal and Cape Cod.

AccuWeather.com will continue to provide updates on the storm moving in from the Midwest this weekend and what the same storm may do near the coast Monday into Tuesday.
