Home / National News / Clipper System to Bring More Snow to Northeast


(NEW YORK) — As millions are still digging out from a record-breaking blizzard that slammed New England this week, a clipper system is moving through the Ohio Valley and Northeast on Thursday and Friday.

Overnight, the clipper dumped snow and ice in Michigan, prompting many schools to close on Thursday. It will next cut through Ohio, Pennsylvania and western New York as it heads towards the Northeast.

The roads for the Friday morning commute could be a bit messy and slick from New York City to Boston, where up to 1 inch and 2-4 inches of snow could fall, respectively.

Higher amounts are expected up north, especially in parts of northern Vermont and Maine. Portland, Maine is forecast to get between 3 and 6 inches of snow.

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Maine, where up to a foot of snow could fall in some areas.
