It will stay in the form of all snow for the I-495/ Rt2 region. The storm will be with us for the day, not tapering off until mid evening." In anticipation of the snow, the National Weather Service has issued a winter weather …

Anywhere from 1-3 inches of snow could fall in the area; a Winter Storm Watch is now in effect.
Another winter storm is headed Mansfield's way. Unlike the blizzard of 2013, though, this incoming storm is expected to bring only upwards of 1-3 inches of the white stuff. This storm will comprise a mix of wind, rain wet snow, the accumulations of which will take place mostly along and outside I-95 Thursday, according to WHDH. Moreover, it will take some time to reach the predicted snow accumulation, WHDH Meteorologist Jeremy Reiner wrote in his blog Wednesday: Tomorrow and into early Friday morning will be the brunt of the storm but I have to tell you---it won't behave like a classic winter storm where we get slammed with snow for 6-8 hours then we're done. It will be a slow, drawn out storm where it snows lightly (sometimes steadily) …

It's also a quick moving storm so look for the last flakes to fly by 9am Thursday morning. In terms of accumulations, coating-2" along & …

It's going to snow this weekend, but how much will we get?

Snow and heat turn up the chatter.
My neighbor is stuck behind a round mound of snow. "I can't wait until it's summer and 90 degrees." Nine months later, the same neighbor, with water bottle in hand, is making her way up the walk. "Man, it's hot. I wish it were cooler. When is this heat going to stop?" That's the beauty of weather. If it's one way, you want it the other way. Give me snow on a 100-degree day. Give me blistering heat on a freezing cold day. Weather also brings out the best in us...most of the time. Anyone who was alive and breathing in the epic Blizzard of 1978 remembers how neighbors who barely said "hello" to each other were opening up their homes, sharing supplies and friendship. My neighborhood designed a system where we would go house to house, asking …
