Wednesday, March 6
Another winter storm is headed Norton's way. Unlike the blizzard of 2013, though, this incoming storm is expected to bring only upwards of 4-8 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.

A News Release from MEMA regarding the potential of severe thunderstorms Thursday evening.
Thursday, June 9, 2011
A Memo from MEMA: Severe Weather Potential for Thursday afternoon and evening... There is some potential for severe thunderstorms late this afternoon or evening.

Most of central and southern New England are at risk for some of these thunderstorms to become severe with damaging winds, large hail, and excessively heavy rain. This is still too far away to know precisely how the event will unfold.
