    Snow Brings Travel Headaches to New England

    A blizzard that has been working its way across the country, dropping near-record amounts of snow on the Plains and causing travel headaches for those in its path is causing the weekend to end on a snowy note across New England.

    This storm caused a total shutdown of the Kansas City International Airport and will continue to create severe headaches for those across New England through Sunday night.

    The biggest travel concern for New England will be from northeastern Massachusetts through southern Maine with the highest snow totals to be around 10 inches.

    Not only will the amounts of snow be high, on top of the feet that have already been dumped on the region in recent storms, but the consistency of the snow can increase the risk to the region. It will be a heavy, wet snow, accompanied by ice and high winds. This could create even more hazardous travel conditions and increase the likelihood of localized power outages.
