Just when you thought it was safe to come out and play, Mother Nature says, "think again."

For the second time in a week, a Nor'easter is barreling across the Midwest, expected to weaken overnight and then reorganize as it gains big "mo" for a big "snow" here on Wednesday beginning around 9 a.m.

Areas of the Northern Seacoast could see six to 12 inches, locally up to 18, before all is said and done by early afternoon on Thursday.

Some portions of western and northern New England could get up to 2 feet of powdery snow, while lesser amounts of the wetter variety can be expected along the coast.

The wind is not expected to be as bad as last week's bomb cyclone, but still enough to bring down branches, small trees and power lines. Winds here could gust up to 40-50 mph.

Blowing and drifting snow could lead to some whiteout conditions.

Winds will be at their stiffest around 9 a.m. on Thursday at a sustained 23 mph and higher gusts.

High temps on Wednesday and Thursday will be in the mid- to high 30s, with overnight lows, of 30 and 24, respectively.
