Another blast of snow makes its way into Northeast

Associated Press Published:

BOSTON -- Another round of snow made its way through the Northeast and into New England on Saturday, dumping another heaping of snow on a region that continues to dig out from a previous storm.

New England was expected to be hit hardest by the latest blast of winter weather. The National Weather Service called for 10 to 14 inches of snow in eastern Massachusetts and parts of Rhode Island.

Eight to 10 inches was to fall in Connecticut along its Rhode Island border.

At its peak, the storm was expected to dump snow at the rate of 3 inches per hour, meteorologist William Babcock.

The weekend snowstorm comes on the heels of an earlier storm that blanketed the East Coast with snow and ice, caused at least 25 deaths and left hundreds of thousands without power. Parts of New York and Vermont ended up with more than 2 feet of snow.

The newest storm was expected to spawn blizzard conditions along the Massachusetts coastline, including Cape Ann and Cape Cod and surrounding islands.

Farther south, New York City's Central Park received 1 1/2 inches of new snow after getting nearly a foot of snow Thursday. In eastern Pennsylvania, from 2 to 5 inches fell before the storm moved out early Saturday evening.

In Lancaster, the station WGAL-TV returned to the air a day after a portion of its station roof collapsed Friday.
