After yet another coating of snow, the townspeople have had their fill of the white stuff this winter.
It's too early for April Fools jokes, but Mother Nature wasn't kidding on Monday morning as more snow fell in the Stoneham area. While it may not have been a substantial amount, the fact residents had to clean off their cars and shovel the fresh coat of snow from their driveways and walkways was a routine they didn't want to get back into. Amanda Chauncy, a recent Salve Regina University graduate, was not in the mood to see snowflakes out her window on Monday morning. “It was very depressing to see the temperature drop and see snow on the ground after the sun and beautiful weather last week,” Chauncy said. Chauncy wants to fast-forward from February into the warmer months where she can be on the ocean under the sun. “I just want it to be …

Deep snowpack means colder ground temperatures, potential for more ice accumulation.
There's shouldn't be too much snow—for once—but the weather on Saturday night will be none too pleasant. The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a winter weather advisory for northeast Massachusetts on Saturday morning, in effect until 10 p.m. this evening, for a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain. Only up to an inch of snow should accumulate on the ground and rooftops, the advisory said, but will be followed by "several hours" of freezing rain. "A light wintry mix of precipitation will overspread the region early this afternoon with steadier precipitation late this afternoon into early this evening," the NWS said. The temperature should hang around the lower 30s, but the ground will actually be colder "given the deep snowpack…

The National Weather Service warned that temperatures, in some places, could drop from the mid-30s into the lower 20s within an hour's time during the earlier evening hours on Wednesday.
Rapidly dropping temperatures this afternoon, combined with the morning mix of snow, sleet and rain will make for a perilous commute on Wednesday evening. The National Weather Service (NWS) warned on late Wednesday morning that Stoneham and other areas in eastern Massachusetts that rose above freezing this morning will drop quickly below freezing during the mid-to-late afternoon. "This is likely to happen in Boston and the North Shore between 3 and 4 p.m.," the NWS said in a special statement. "In many locations the temperature may drop from the mid-30s to lower 20s within an hour's time. "This rapid drop in temperature will cause standing water and slush to freeze on untreated road and walking surfaces in time for the evening commute." …
