Earlier Monday, a nasty winter storm hit New England that temporarily shut down runways at Logan Airport. A Massport spokesman said that CBS Boston airport crews were unable to keep up with the snow and weren't departing or landing aircraft as of approximately 10 a.m.

About an hour later, one runway was able to open but delays were expected throughout the day.

A combination of high wind gusts and heavy snow on wires could lead to power outages in the region. There reportedly were about 11,000 outages in the state as of 2 p.m., mostly on Cape Cod. 

Dave Epstein, CBS Boston meteorologist, recommended clearing out any snow and slush because temperatures will not be above freezing for the rest of the week.
