A nor'easter that could deliver up to 2 feet of snow to some areas socked New England on Tuesday, bringing blizzard conditions to coastal MA and Rhode Island, blanketing highways with fluffy snow and knocking out power to tens of thousands of utility customers.

"Snow squalls and brief heavy snow showers are possible across most of Southern New England late this afternoon and overnight".

"This one's main impact is going to be snow", said Kim Buttrick, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Taunton, Massachusetts.

The National Weather Service says Derry, New Hampshire, got 25 inches.

About 140,000 customers were without power in MA on Wednesday morning, while Maine, Rhode Island and CT were also dealing with scattered outages. The flight-tracking site FlightAware reported more than 1,500 cancelled flights on Tuesday.

Amtrak suspended all service Tuesday between Boston to New York City. "This is the third storm in a row", the governor said.

Although the latest storm is not expected to bring as many power outages as a nor'easter last week because the snow is lighter, more than 150,000 customers in MA were without power Tuesday morning. "It'll hit New England the hardest". The Portland International Jetport has had 75.5 inches of snow, far above the normal for the date of 51.8 inches, with another 12 to 18 inches on the way, said James Brown, of the National Weather Service.

In New Hampshire, where as much as 14 inches of snow was forecast, the storm was wreaking havoc with the age-old town meeting tradition. Foster, Rhode island, got more than 25 inches while in Connecticut, Killingly had the most, with just over 20 inches.

As of 6 p.m., snowfall totals topped more than 20 inches in Providence County, R.I., and Worcester County, Mass., for the previous 5 hours.
