Another big winter storm is moving up the East Coast. It's the second blast of winter weather to hit the region in the last two days.
Central Massachusettes saw six inches of snow Wednesday and there are still widespread power outages.
The National Weather Service calls this latest storm "significant and long-lasting," packing wind gusts of 40 to 50 miles per hour.
Some areas could see more than a foot of snow by Friday -- including Philadelphia, which has already seen more than 70 inches of snow this season.
"It might not be until early next week that we get rid of the storm completely," said meteorologist Hugh Johnson of the National Weather Service's Albany, N.Y. office.
Wednesday's snowstorm ended a long stretch without a major snowfall in the Northeast. The region had avoided most of the severe weather that walloped the mid-Atlantic in recent weeks.
