Just when you thought you were going to finally get the heck out of Dodge, Old Man Winter throws another monkey wrench.
That monkey wrench, however, could be more like a sledgehammer with as much as two feet of heavy, wet, nasty snow possible in the Greater Rochester area.
According to today's Accuweather snowmap, Rochester is just a short distance south of where a large swath of northwestern Maine, northern New Hampshire and northern Vermont are forecast to get anywhere from 12-24 inches.
Even if Rochester stays in the 6-12 inch range where it now sits, it'll be no picnic since the snow will likely be heavier to shovel than last week's storm.

Forecasters predict it could come down at two inches an hour in some spots, and the winds will be stronger than last week leading to another round of misery with more downed trees and power outages likely.
The storm will also be longer in duration than last week's, too. The National Weather Service has posted a storm watch from 8 a.m. on Wednesday till 6 a.m. on Friday.
Winds out of the east will begin ramping up around 10 a.m. on Wednesday with gusts up to 27 mph, as a mix of rain and snow begins to fall around noon. Early Thursday, as temps fall into mid-30s the mixture of rain and snow will turn into a heavy snow, forecaster predict, and will transition back and forth from snow to a precip mix throughout the day and night.
