Students charge into the fray at the start of the Cadets vs Civilians snowball fight on the Virginia Tech Drillfield in Blacksburg, Virginia on Monday

Latest nor’easter could dump two feet of snow on Boston

The third major nor’easter in three weeks started to slam the storm-battered Northeast this morning, with blizzard conditions expected in some areas.

The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for much of the Massachusetts coast, a winter storm warning for most of New England and a winter weather advisory for portions of New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

‘Three nor’easters in less than 2 weeks isn’t easy on anyone – and we are extremely grateful for the hard work of our first responders, utility and road crews, and municipal officials who have been working nonstop to clean up after these powerful storms,’ Republican Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker wrote on Twitter Monday night.
