Another winter storm could impact the northeast next week

Another coastal storm brewing with more snow by midweek

While Quinn will be an impactful storm, it'll be much different than last week's Winter Storm Riley. Rain in Boston will shift to snow between 6 and 8 p.m., according to Epstein, with the transition in Newton and Needham happening closer to 6 and getting to Logan Airport around 8 p.m.

Schools in several MA districts were ordered closed Thursday as the Northeast prepares for a second winter storm in as many weeks. However, many trees and power lines are already weakened from that storm, and that will lead to additional power outages. "People on the coast and with travel interests in the Northeast should monitor the progress of the potential storm".

"A quick 1 to 2 inches of rain is anticipated across the region Wednesday afternoon and evening".

Power outages are expected to be an issue after a wet month of February has loosened up ground, potentially helping topple trees and power lines as seen on Friday.

A compact but powerful nor'easter will skirt the New Jersey coast Wednesday afternoon before heading toward Cape Cod.

ED Opioid Overdose Visits Jump 30% in One Year
Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Delaware and IL reported an uptick of 50 percent or more, the report said. Overall as a nation, we are still failing to adequately respond to the opiate addiction epidemic.

The timing of the storm will make travel "very hard to impossible", including during the evening commute on Wednesday, the National Weather Service said.

Snow began falling Tuesday night with a slushy accumulation on the ground at dawn on Wednesday. Areas that may see heavy snowfall include Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City, and Boston, USA Today reported. Snow accumulations could easily surpass a foot in areas west of the I-95 corridor, with some places in northwest New Jersey forecast to get up to two feet.

A winter storm watch is in effect throughout much of the East Coast for the second time in a week, as a new winter storm is expected to bring snow and frigid conditions to states including Massachusets that are still recovering from last week's nor'easter.

At times, this snow may fall at the rate of 1 to 2 inches per hour or heavier. The weather service was continuing its winter storm warning until 4 a.m. Thursday.

Amtrak canceled some Acela Express, Northeast Regional, Keystone Service and Empire Service trains in the region, and Metro-North Railroad planned to run fewer trains during the morning and evening rushes.

PNB scam: SFIO summons ICICI chief Chanda Kochhar for questioning
Meanwhile, the ICICI Bank has said its exposure to the Gitanjali Group is not the largest among the consortium lenders. Chitalia was brought to the Central Bureau of Investigation office at the Bandra-Kurla Complex for interrogation.

Some minor to moderate coastal flooding is also possible along the Northeast coastline Wednesday and Thursday.

While 40-mph wind gusts are certainly strong, they're nowhere near the magnitude of the gusts observed during Riley.

Wolf said 450 National Guard members are on standby to assist with storm preparations and aftermath.

Wind gusts could reach speeds of 35-45 miles per hour and could be potentially damaging.

West Virginia teachers: No raise, no school; strike goes on
While saying she is "very supportive" of the teachers, Carty said she is anxious about the students during the strike. Teachers are exhausted of not having the supports and funding so they can do their jobs adequately in the classroom.
