BOSTON (AP) -- A nor'easter that could bring blizzard conditions and nearly 2 feet of snow to some areas of New England has started to intensify.

What began as a wet, slushy, wind-driven rain in the pre-dawn hours Tuesday turned into snow that quickly covered roads and made driving treacherous.

The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for much of the coast of Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts.

Although the latest storm was not expected to bring as many power outages as a nor'easter last week, about 12,000 customers in Massachusetts lost power Tuesday morning.

Communities across the region closed schools for the day and issued on-street parking bans.

The Boston-area public transit system said it would operate on a limited weekday basis and encouraged people to check schedules before heading out.
