You tell us, are you soaking in these spring-like temperatures or hoping to see snow in the forecast?
Let's face it - it's been a few years since a snowstorm has truly walloped the area, despite several inches in a recent storm. On top of that, the National Weather Service is predicting that local residents can expect high temperatures to stay in the mid-40s for the rest of the week and the New England Patriots may end up playing their rematch with the Houston Texans in sunny, 50-degree weather. So, we have to ask: Have you been loving this break from typical New England winter weather or are you in serious need of snowfall? Let us know in the comments section below.

There will be several storms moving across the area all week that are expected to all bring rain to much of the state.
The light coating of white we saw on the ground Sunday afternoon is likely all the snow we’ll see as part of several storms that will move across much of the state, including Canton, this week, according to the National Weather Service. The greatest chance of snow will come to the northwest of the two towns. On Monday night into Tuesday, the next storm will bring “mainly rain” to the area, the weather service said. Then on Tuesday night into Wednesday northwest winds could really pick up. Winds during that time could prompt a wind advisory, the weather service said. And finally, on Thursday night into Friday, another storm will again “probably bring mainly rain” with a greater chance of snow to start the storm for inland areas.

The roads were fairly clear this afternoon, but it was still slow-going during the height of the storm.
Canton roads were fairly clear this morning but the storm seems to have dumped more snow around town, making for a tricky commute this afternoon.
