There doesn't seem to be any escape. This month started bad and is ending thesame way. What's more, the cold, stormy weather pattern that set in during thefirst few days of February will persist into March.The forces that came together to produce the super storm across the Northeast acouple of days ago have started to regroup over the western Atlantic. Latestsatellite imagery confirms that explosive storm development is occurringseveral hundred miles to the east of New Jersey. Normally, we would say bye-byeto a storm that far out, but this one is moving northwest and will havesignificant impact on the weather across New England and the Maritimes Sundaynight and Monday.

Along the coastline there will be strong gales from Cape Cod to Nova Scotia.

The interior of New England from Vermont to Maine will get 3 to 6 inches ofsnow with 10 or 12 inches possible in the mountains. Several inches of snowwill also fall in central New Brunswick. The region from eastern Massachusettsto southeastern Maine can expect a mix of snow, sleet and rain with snowaccumulations from 2 to 4 inches over the hills to a little slush along thecoast.
