A look at Norton's weather forecast.
Althought we will continue to see spring weather in Norton throughout Monday and Tuesday, don't expect that to continue throughout the whole week. Wednesday will see a much different weather pattern. "Blocking high pressure finally leaves New England and allows storminess in the south to move up into our part of the world in the form of clouds & a few showers," wrote WHDH's Jeremy Reiner in his weather blog. "The storm will be a bit of a slow mover so most of Wednesday will be dry with showers holding off until late day. Of course, this slow-moving storm will keep the chance of rain here in New England quite high for the entire day on Thursday. Temps, naturally, take a hit on Thursday struggling to reach 60."
