Northeast Braces For Nor'easter, Blizzard Conditions... Again

Third time's the charm? 

A winter storm heading for New England is set to re-intensify and become another 'bomb cyclone' delivering blizzard conditions and up to two feet of snow for the third time in less than a month. 

The region, which is still recovering from the previous two winter storms in the area that cut power to millions of homes and businesses, is under another winter storm watch which was issued by northern Connecticut, Rhode Island and much of Massachusetts through Tuesday night.

The National Weather Service warned that heavy snow for the area was on the way. 

"Heavy snow expected with near blizzard conditions," the weather service tweeted. "Total snow accumulations of 12 to 17 inches, with localized amounts up to 22 inches, are expected."

Upstate New York will also likely see heavy snow by later this week. 

The storm is set to strengthen Monday night into Tuesday, and has the potential to undergo "bombogenesis," a condition in which plunging barometric pressures deeply intensify storms. The nor'easter can then be called a "weather bomb" or "bomb cyclone." 

Thousands of people are still without power from the last go round. The last storm hit the region with wet, heavy snow and high winds that knocked down trees and toppled power lines. 

The storm is forecast to hit much of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York State, and most of New England.
