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?

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!

The storm brought whipping winds, with gusts up to 38mph and temperatures in the 20s. Schools and town offices were closed for the day across the Bay State, and Canton’s Department of Public Works crews were out since 12 a.m. sanding, plowing and trying to keep the roads clear. Canton’s Fire Department responded to several calls for downed power lines and downed trees. Most of the area had electricity, although some spots reported power …
