The third nor'easter in two weeks lashed New England with hurricane-force winds and up to 25 inches of snow. Winter Storm Skylar closed schools, canceled flights and knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses across the northeast.

The storm stretched from New York state to Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Maine. Forecasters warned of blizzard conditions, where high winds make travel dangerous, from coastal Massachusetts through Maine.

The National Weather Service said Derry in New Hampshire got 25 inches inches of snow, while Burrillville in Rhode Island and Kezar Falls in Maine both got 20 inches. In the Boston area, 22 inches of snow were recorded in Concord, with 19 inches in Natick and 17.3 in Mansfield.

More than 1,500 flights were canceled, according to tracking service FlightAware. The hardest-hit airport was Boston Logan, where about four out of five flights were called off. Schools in Boston and Providence, Rhode Island, were shut on Tuesday, Maine's state legislature canceled its session, Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy closed all government offices and the Amtrak passenger rail line halted service between Boston and New York.

This storm's heavy snow could down trees weakened by the last two storms and bring a fresh wave of power outages, officials warned. But lower tides meant the storm would probably not bring a repeat of the flooding that sent icy water pouring into the streets of Boston during a storm early this month, forecasters and officials said.
