"At this time, the corridor expected to be in the bulls-eye of heaviest snow will be portions of central and eastern ME, including Bangor and Bar Harbor", AccuWeather said.

If it seems like it was just yesterday the Northeast had to batten down for a big, blustery snowstorm - well, you're nearly right.

"The snow will intensify in the overnight hours and continue until early tomorrow before it pulls off", Pohl said Sunday.

North winds will be at 20 to 25 miles per hour with gusts up to 50 miles per hour.

"From Sunday afternoon to Monday evening, another powerful winter storm set to deliver blizzard conditions is on the way for portions of New England hit hard by snowfall this past Thursday", AccuWeather Meteorologist Kyle Elliott said.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh says using a space saver to reserve a parking spot that you cleared of snow is OK - leaving nasty notes threatening violence or vandalism for people thinking of stealing that space are not. Eastern Maine is under a blizzard warning.

A lake effect snow advisory has been issued for parts of upstate NY and is expected to last through Friday afternoon, the National Weather Service warns.

The start of jury selection for the Aaron Hernandez murder trial on Monday has also been postponed due to the storm.

"Here you see people getting out of their taxis ON THE GCP to climb a hill of snow, ' a Twitter user who goes by the name @ShaquilleAKhan tweeted Friday morning". More than 1,300 flights in the US were scrapped Sunday and more than 6,000 delayed, according to the flight-tracking website FlightAware.com.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation is urging motorists to adjust travel plans and avoid driving if possible throughout the duration of the storm.

It looks like yet another storm is on the way for Wednesday into Thursday. A warming trend develops late in the weekend with snow melting early next week.

The warm air in southern New England coupled with the storm's late intensification has spared the region from a big storm. "It's night and day and everyone is absolutely thrilled". An inch of less is expected Monday during the day. Republican Gov. Phil Scott encouraged out-of-state skiers and snowmobilers to stay an extra day or two in Vermont and take advantage of the conditions.
