New England Blizzard Disrupts Spring

March 20th was the first day of spring, yet a major Nor’easter is producing gale-force winds and spewing heavy snow across eastern New England today. In fact, it is producing blizzard conditions across far eastern New England!

This powerful storm system is producing its fiercest winds and weather offshore. Even so, this nor’easter is large enough to produce howling northwesterly winds across eastern New England, with Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, Mass., getting hit the hardest. Already this morning, a wind gust of 78 mph was measured on Nantucket.

Blizzard Warnings are in effect for Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and far eastern Maine. Winter Weather Advisories and Winter Storm Warning are in effect for interior northern Maine. In addition, High Wind Warning and Wind Advisories stretch from northeastern New Jersey into Maine. Cities such as New York City, Hartford, Conn., Providence, R.I., and Boston are also included.

The Nor’easter will quickly settle into Canada tonight, with snow and wind ending completely across New England. As the weather improves in New England, it will quickly go downhill in eastern Canada by mid-afternoon. Heavy snow and hurricane-force winds will buffet the Maritime Provinces, including Nova Scotia.
