Cold, Dangerous Winds Strike New England

WikiMedia Commons

Snow and dangerously high winds are roaring to New England to face an army of road crews and emergency workers who have readied themselves for the fourth winter onslaught in less than a month.

A blizzard warning is in effect for coastal communities from Connecticut to Maine into Monday; and a bone-chilling blast of cold, with lows of minus 10 degrees is in the Sunday night forecast in parts of the region.

Weather forecasters say that before it is all over, southern New England could see 8 to 14 inches of snow and Maine could get up to 2 feet.

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker and Gov. Gina Raimondo in Rhode Island warn motorists to stay off the roads. Baker stopped short of an outright travel ban.
