Blizzard continues in southeast Massachusetts

2:34 P.M. ET 1/23/2005


B. Bernard, Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



Blizzard warnings remain posted in parts of southern New England (including Boston) and along the coast of Maine this afternoon. The worst weather is now focusing on southeastern Massachusetts (including Cape Cod and the islands) where winds have gusted as high as 75 mph, driving the snow into huge drifts. Another 6-12 inches may fall on the Cape today, bringing totals there close to 3 feet in some locations.


The snow and wind are gradually letting up from west to east, but blizzard conditions will persist over southeastern New England until this evening. Count on air and ground travel in the area being virtually impossible for at least the next 6 hours.


Some snowfall totals as of midday Sunday: South Hamilton (north of Boston) 29"; Boston 26", Providence, R.I., 23"; New Haven, Conn., 16"; New York City 14". No new reports have been received from Cape Cod since this morning.
