BOSTON (AP) - The governor of Massachusetts is urging drivers to stay off of the roads for 12 hours as another snowstorm pounds New England.
Gov. Deval Patrick says, "It won't be possible to keep up with the clearing of the roads."
Forecasters are calling for 10 to 14 inches of snow in the eastern part of Massachusetts and parts of Rhode Island.
At its peak, they predict the storm will dump snow at the rate of 3 inches per hour.
Boston Mayor Martin Walsh says the city will deploy more than 600 snow plows, trucks and other equipment by this evening to deal with the city's latest snowstorm.
Connecticut could see 8 to 10 inches along its Rhode Island border.
In Maine, forecasts call for 12 to 18 inches of snow beginning tonight. Southeastern New Hampshire could get 6 to 10 inches.
The weekend snowstorm comes on the heels of another storm that brought snow and ice to the East Coast, caused at least 25 deaths and left hundreds of thousands without power. Parts of New York and Vermont ended up with more than 2 feet of snow.
