I had a doctor's appointment, but the doctor's office called to say that almost all the patients who had appointments today cancelled, so I might as well reschedule too... Mind you right now it doesn't look that bad. It's snowing, but it's mild enough that it's not piling up. There's a bit of wind, but nothing like there was two weeks ago. So, let's hope we get off easy this time. Knock on wood.

New England Braces for Third Nor’easter in Two Weeks

New England residents have been warned to brace for yet another brutal winter storm, less than two weeks after a previous one downed trees and left hundreds of thousands without power. Winter weather advisories or warnings were in effect late Monday for much of the Northeast, including New York City, Boston, and Portland, Maine. Some areas in Massachusetts and Rhode Island were warned to expect up to 18 inches of snow, while Connecticut was on track to get between 8 and 12 inches. Forecasters said the storm could turn into a “bomb cyclone” with heavy snow and powerful winds. More than 1,000 flights scheduled for Tuesday have already been canceled in preparation for the storm, most of them in Boston.

The combination of heavy snow and strong wind created whiteout conditions on March 13 in eastern Mass. Up to 24 inches of snow is expected in this storm.

4th Nor’Easter in a Month May Dump 14” of Snow on New York

It’s not over yet. Forecasters early Tuesday upped their winter storm warning for New York City as two systems appeared to combine and now threaten to drop more than a foot of snow—on the second day of spring, no less. As much as 18 inches is expected in Philadelphia, with significant accumulations predicted for Washington, D.C., Boston, and Connecticut. The National Weather Service says the sleet will begin late Tuesday, but the heaviest snow will come Wednesday afternoon, along with yet another round of high winds, coastal flooding, and even more power outages. It will be the fourth nor’easter to hit the region in less than a month.

How Much Snow Will We Get? Winter Storm Toby to Drop Up to 11 Inches in Boston, 9 in New York
By Nicole Rojas

Spring may be around the corner, but you would not know it living in the East Coast. A fourth nor’easter is expected to begin on Tuesday, bringing with it more snow, strong winds and coastal flooding.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued winter storm warnings and watches from Washington D.C. up to Boston. The fourth nor’easter to affect the Northeast has been named winter storm Toby.

In the mid-Atlantic, the weather service has issued a warning for most of Tuesday, with a winter storm watch taking effect from Tuesday evening through Wednesday afternoon. Meanwhile, in the Northeast, the NWS has only issued a winter storm watch.

The Baltimore and D.C. area are expected to receive heavy snow accumulations of 4 to 8 inches, the NWS said. “Additional heavy snow is possible from Tuesday evening through Wednesday afternoon, with additional snow accumulations of 5 or more inches,” the service said in its warning.

Toby is expected to drop much more heavy wet snow Tuesday night into Wednesday in Maryland’s Garrett County and West Virginia’s Eastern Preston, Western Tucker and Eastern Tucker Counties. The NWS warned the area could see snow accumulations of 9 to 12 inches, with localized amounts of 14 inches.

Parts of Pennsylvania and West Virginia will see snow accumulations of 5 to 7 inches, with localized amounts up to 9 expected.

Toby will drop similar snow accumulations in parts of New York and southern Connecticut. The area is expected to receive between 4 to 9 inches of heavy wet snow.

Toby is predicted to drop between 5 to 8 inches of snow in other parts of Connecticut, as well as Rhode Island and Massachusetts, with localized amounts of 11 inches possible.

According to The Weather Channel, an area of low pressure will move through the Appalachians as a new area of low pressure builds off the East Coast. The second area of low pressure is expected to intensify and track off the Northeast seaboard Wednesday into Thursday, the Weather Channel reported.

It remains to be seen whether the second low pressure system will track close enough to the coastline for the I-95 corridor between New York City and Boston to get significant snow.

The East Coast will see strong winds, though they're not expected to be as strong as the winds during this month’s earlier nor’easters. In New England, the NWS predicted there is a low risk for isolated power outages.

The Northeast has been besieged by nor’easters in March, with nearly 2 feet of snow dropping in Boston last week. The storm, named winter storm Skylar, reached blizzard conditions, shut down power and closed down schools.

The NWS has warned of difficult traveling conditions, particularly during commuting hours on Wednesday.

You wouldn't if you felt like you were wading through over warm water each time you left your house and were saturated by the time you reached the corner of your street or went into your backyard to hang clothes on the clothesline.. Mind you they did dry very quickly but it is horrible living in pre monsoon conditions a lot of the time....

There is only so much clothing you can take off when too hot but you can always rug up in the cold with thermal underwear and other stuff...
