The mix of snow and rain is expected to produce heavy snow and wind gusts that could down trees and power lines and leave many Bay State residents in the dark.

New England is bracing for another winter blast of snow and strong winds only days after a storm dumped up to 19 inches on parts of the region. "And the winter storm warning is definitely staying in place".

As Winter Storm Orson continued into Monday morning, officials announced that courthouses across the state would delay opening 10 a.m. Monday.

"Here you see people getting out of their taxis ON THE GCP to climb a hill of snow, ' a Twitter user who goes by the name @ShaquilleAKhan tweeted Friday morning".

Snow will continue through Sunday night and into the day on Monday. This will enhance snowfall totals in locations in eastern and northern New England.

A major winter storm will develop Sunday into Monday. The closer the isobars are together, the stronger the winds can be.

Farther inland, 20-40 miles per hour gusts will still create blowing and drifting snow as we try to dig out from the heavy snow.

A blizzard warning was posted for a swath of the New England coast, with forecasters saying Boston and Providence, Rhode Island, could get up to a foot and a half by evening.

Winds gusting up to 40 miles per hour tonight will cause some blowing snow and hard driving conditions.

Much of New England and upstate NY will likely experience blowing and drifting of snow, resulting in hazardous travel conditions.

There's more snow coming Sunday night, according to the National Weather Service. "That's the rapidly deepening pressure of the storm system, more specifically, when the pressure drops by 24mb in less than 24 hours".

-Many in the Northeast were caught off guard today as Wednesday's balmy spring-like temperatures suddenly gave way to blizzard conditions. Coastal areas in the region could also see flooding.

"We are now monitoring the winter storm impacting MA, including the potential for high winds tomorrow and flooding in some areas", Baker said.

Meteorologists are talking about a mix of snow, rain, sleet and freezing rain. As this system begins to intensify Sunday night, winds and precipitation will increase.

Workers were hustling to clear about a foot of snow out of the parking lot at 33 Elmwood, a Westbrook, Maine, restaurant that hosts activities like bocce and bowling.

Given the recent cold, even a small amount of snow can quickly cause a slick coating on roadways. However, there will be some differences with Orson. Snow, possibly mixing with sleet as after north as the I-84 corridor to all snow far northern CT throughout the afternoon and evening.

Sam Lopresti, of Jersey City, N.J., warm and dry in his workplace, said he was pleasantly surprised that his early-morning train trip into New York City had gone smoothly. Snow will most likely be heavy at times.
