Historic Blizzard of 2005 over

The Blizzard of 2005 will go down in history as one of the top 5 snowstorms in southeastern New England. Snowfall amounts of 1 to 3 feet were widespread across the region. Providence, R. I., had 23.4" for its 2nd heaviest snowfall on record, behind only the blizzard of February 1978 with 28.6". Boston, Mass., measured 22.5" at Logan Airport, the fifth greatest single-storm snowfall on record. The heaviest snows fell near the eastern Massachusetts shore and on Cape Cod and where totals ranged from 30 to 38". It was one incredible snowstorm from the Midwest to the Northeast that many will not soon forget. Travel in the Northeast will be slow for a day or two as the snow melts and refreezes again.


Over most of the country, the weather is very quiet today. A weak front pushing southeastward out of Canada will spread light snow and flurries from the Great Lakes into much of the Northeast today, but any accumulations should be minor... more of a nuisance than anything else.
