New England braced Friday for another major snowstorm, just two weeks after a mammoth record-breaking blizzard buried much of the region.

The peak of the storm is forecast for Saturday night through midday Sunday. It is not expected to be as strong as the blizzard, but the storm could still pack a powerful punch, with between 6-18 inches of snow expected in some places.

Interior portions of Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine will see the heaviest snow, while the major metro areas of Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York City are expecting rain. Boston is on the line between rain and snow.

“I’ve had enough. I’m ready for spring,” said Elaine Cardinal, a resident of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, CNN affiliate WHDH reported.

The storm, combined with high winds, could lead to downed trees and power lines.

It will likely disrupt travel on roads and create delays at airports, before heading out over the Atlantic on Monday.

“Boston will be ready,” said Mayor Thomas Menino. “We will be out treating the roads before the snow, and our plows are ready to hit the streets this weekend.”

Arctic tailgate

The winter storm is separate from one that hit 20 states this week, pummeling baseball fans in Wisconsin and dumping record snow in parts of Kansas.

In spite of the snow, Milwaukee Brewers fans showed up at Miller Park to camp out for their shot to buy individual tickets for Brewers home games. Tickets go on sale Saturday.

“Had a little heat in there. Covered up with three sleeping bags. I was good,” fan Randy Gordon told CNN affiliate WISN.

Unlike some other tents, Gordon’s survived a blustery night.

Video showed a heavy snow falling, whipping plastic panels on tents set up outside the ballpark. A lone grill sat unused.

Some snow records

Wichita, Kansas, saw its second-highest storm snowfall total on record with 14.2 inches over two days, the National Weather Service said.

Some parts of the state saw even more snow, and Missouri was not far behind, with accumulations of around a foot in some places. Neighboring Nebraska got less snow than expected.

The snow set a record at Kansas City International Airport with 9 inches falling in a single day. The old record was 5.1 inches set in 2010. The airport closed Thursday evening but reopened overnight.

Some businesses and universities shut down Thursday as state officials urged residents to stay off the roads.

The white blanket emptied out the streets of Kansas City.
