BOSTON — The latest blast of snow to hit New England dumped more than a foot in part of Massachusetts and packed heavy winds that left thousands without power Sunday on Cape Cod.

Snow continued to fall farther north and forecasters said parts of Maine could see additional accumulation before the storm moves out Sunday.

Coastal areas in Maine and south of Boston appeared to get the worst of the storm overnight. In Massachusetts, 15 inches of snow was reported in Sandwich and 10 inches was reported in New Bedford and Plymouth.

In Maine, 17 inches was reported in Hancock, and 16.7 in Eastport, in the easternmost city in the U.S. A winter storm warning remained in effect in northeast Maine through the afternoon, the National Weather Service said.

Wind gusts of more than 50 mph were reported Saturday night on Cape Cod, where electricity provider NStar said more than 13,000 customers were without power Sunday morning. About 1,700 customers lost power in Hyannis, where wind gusts topped out at 47 mph late Saturday.

The weekend snowstorm comes on the heels of an earlier storm that blanketed the East Coast with snow and ice, caused at least 25 deaths and left hundreds of thousands without power.
