White-out conditions are expected to continue into the early morning hours on Saturday, according to the WHDH forecast.

A wet start to the spring.
Hope you did not pack the rain boots away with the winter clothes. Canton is in store for a week of unseasonably cool temperatures and rain. According to the National Weather Service, the showers will remain through Thursday. Expect showers, thunderstorms and a high near 55 degrees today. The blue skies should return on Friday, when the forecast calls for a high of 63 degrees and only a 40 percent chance of showers, according to the NWS. At least this weather should help the plants and flower gardens grow!

Snow is coming back to Canton tonight and Thursday.
After a teaser of spring weather last week, Canton will be experiencing more winter after all. The National Weather Service is predicting about one to two inches of snow tonight, starting after midnight. Snow will continue before 1:00 p.m. Thursday and then turn to rain, making for a wet, messy day. Snow showers will return again Thursday night. But no need for shovels this time around. The National Weather Service is forecasting only another inch to accumulate Thursday. Two to three inches is nothing for New Englanders–and sure beats a blizzard. The inch of snow that fell on Monday made for a cold and wet second day of spring. Expect sunshine and a high temperature of 37 degrees on Friday and temps in the 30s over the weekend.

For some, the snow means a little extra green.
For most folks, more snow means aching backs and a huge headache. But for some lucky businesses, the white stuff means more green in their wallets. The local supermarkets thrive during the New England winters thanks to the plethora of storms and Blizzard of 78-preparedness. Locals can not hunker down for a storm without their milk, eggs and bread. At Shaw's in Canton, the parking lot was difficult to navigate as cars were driving during the intense snow and low visibility. Shoppers ran in to buy the New England essentials before this week's two-part storm hit full swing. Aisles were packed with customers at 1o:00 a.m. Tuesday. According to a check-out clerk, "This place has been busy since I got here at 8:30 this morning." A customer …

Highlights from neighborhood fun in Canton during the fourth snow-day of the season.
Dear Mother Nature: As much as we love the snow, can you please be kind to Canton for the rest of the winter? Two Nor'easters, one blizzard and two storms are enough for the year. We are in need of some sun and shovel-free days. Plus, there is no where to put the snow. We are snowed out! Much appreciated, Canton Patch

Nor'easter arriving tonight and dumping another six to 10 inches on Canton.
Mother Nature is making this one tough winter. The state is preparing for Nor'easter number two of 2011 to bring another six to ten inches of snow to the Canton area Wednesday night through Thursday morning. The National Weather Service is predicting the snow to arrive after 3:00 p.m. today, with less than one inch accumulating during the day. But come tonight, the Nor'easter will bring a low temperature around 23 degrees with wind gusts up to 41 mph and dump up to ten inches of new snow. The snowfall should stop by about 11:00 a.m. Thursday and bring sunny skies with a high of 32 degrees. Leaving us all plenty of daylight hours to dig out, again. The real issue now, where to put the mounds of snow?

Today's weather created a messy morning and a clear, blue afternoon in Canton.
The afternoon sun and bright blue skies made for clearer roads and easier travel in Canton today, as plows took care of the white stuff early on in the day. Of course, the cleanup continued all day as folks dug out from the latest storm with shovels, snow-blowers and plows. With all this white stuff, the snow heaps are piling up around town. Luckily, the National Weather Service is not calling for anymore snow this weekend, just bitter cold temperatures. Saturday will see a wind chill of -1 degrees. Bundle up this weekend!
