A look back at the Storm of the Century, 25 years ago

Meteorologists report two potential scenarios based on two separate weather monitoring systems. The GFS model above predicts the storm will hug the East Coast shore giving cities a direct hit

New England braced Tuesday for its third nor'easter in less than two weeks, which threatens to hit the region with as much as 2 feet of snow.

NY could get 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 centimeters) by early Tuesday, with more falling on eastern Long Island and coastal CT, the National Weather Service said. The majority of the island should receive anywhere from 5 to 12 inches, according to forecasters, but towns like Montauk on the outermost edge of the island could get walloped with 12 to 18 inches of snow.

The National Weather Service said Monday that Suffolk County in NY, and Southern Connecticut will receive a heavy, wet snowfall of 5 to 10 inches, with 1 to 2 inches of snow per hour.

The National Weather Service of Boston officially declared the storm a blizzard at noon Tuesday after three straight hours of blizzard conditions.

Eversource and United Illuminating just restored most of the outages from Winter Storm Elsa, which hit last week.

The Northeast is bracing for a third nor'easter to impact the region in less than two weeks - and it is expected to bring snow and heavy winds starting Monday night.

The latest storm, however, wasn't expected to pack as much of a punch locally.

Many Rhode Island state offices and schools have been closed for Tuesday. The highest accumulation - around two feet of wet, heavy snow - is expected on the South Shore and parts of Cape Cod. High near 45. Breezy, with a northwest wind 10 to 20 miles per hour with gusts as high as 33 miles per hour. Forecasters warned of blizzard conditions, where high winds make travel unsafe, from coastal MA through Maine.

By 8AM, we may have at least a few inches of snow on the ground, and it will continue to quickly pile up.

More than a foot of snow is expected in parts of CT, where Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is urging people to "take it slow and remember their winter weather driving skills".

Very cold air will then pour into the eastern USA behind the storm, leading to very cold temperatures for March to continue into mid-week all the way down to Florida. Winter Storm Skylar will cap off the 11-day nor'easter trifecta when it swipes New England on Tuesday. The storm was expected to continue into Tuesday.

Suffolk County is under a winter storm warning with 8 to 10 inches in the forecast for the East End.

There was barely enough snow early Tuesday to coat lawns and sand beaches, yet winds near hurricane force were lashing the peninsula.
