Snow is set to make for a slippery Tuesday morning commute; but don't expect to see school buses, as Framingham Public Schools are closed Tuesday.
With a forecast 4 to 8 inches of snow set to hit Framingham in the early morning, the Tuesday morning commute could be a slippery one. "Tuesday will be a stormy day across the region with snow for just about everyone during the morning rush," writes WHDH Channel 7 Meteorologist Jeremy Reiner on the Channel 7 Weather Blog. While the skies are clear today, the cities and towns along 495 will see 4 to 8 inches of snow overnight and through mid-day Tuesday. Unlike most March storms, writes Reiner on the blog, the temperatures will remain cold for the rest of the week. So do not expect the snow to magically dissapear in one day.

Framingham will see mostly rain with some possible rain/snow mix, forecasters say.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Middlesex County and the Metrowest area including Framingham as a batch of rain and snow moves its way into southern New England. After some rain Wednesday, the storm is expected to last through Thursday into Friday. WHDH forecasters are predicting a rain/snow mix for west of Boston. According to snow total maps from this morning, some areas west of I-95 could get 3-5 inches of snow, depending on where the rain/snow line falls. Forecasters emphasized that this is not a blizzard, rather a prolonged storm that will last over the next day and a half. From Jeremy Reiner's WHDH Weather Blog: Tomorrow (Thursday) and into early Friday morning will be the brunt of the storm but I …

The forecast calls for mostly wet snow in MetroWest region, including Framingham.
Another big storm will hit the MetroWest area on Wednesday and Thursday. The storm will hit Wednesday morning and last through Thursday, according to the National Weather Service forecast for Framingham. The Service issued a winter storm watch for our region. WHDH-TV at 4 p.m. was forecasting 4-8 inches of heavy, wet snow for Framingham and MetroWest region. WHDH TV meteorologist Jeremy Reiner writes in his blog earlier today: Time to start talking about a big storm heading this way. It's the same storm that will pound the Midwest-Mid Atlantic today & tomorrow. This storm will pass close enough to New England to make it a player in our world. Still a lot of details to work out but here's what I'm thinking: *Drawn out storm....late …

Weather forecasters have changed their opinion; now predicting just 3-5 inches of snow for MetroWest and Framingham.
Weather forecasters have changed their opinion; now predicting just 3-5 inches of snow for MetroWest and Framingham, according to our news partner WHDH-TV. Earlier in the week, WHDH-TV was calling for a foot for Framingham and MetroWest. Even this morning, it was predicting 6-10 inches. The National Weather Service still has Framingham and MetroWest in a winter storm watch Saturday afternoon through Sunday afternoon, with a prediction of 3 to 7 inches of snow. WCVB-TV is calling for 2-6 inches in MetroWest and Framingham. WHDH-TV Meterorlogist Pete Bouchard writes in his weather blog "Now before you go slinging mud, keep this in mind... I gave snow amounts a couple of days ago because I felt there was a need to get out the word, not to …

The National Weather Service and many of the local weather forecasters are calling for snow again this weekend for Framingham.
Thursday, February 21
The National Weather Service and many of the local weather forecasters are calling for snow again this weekend - the third weekend in a row. Depending on which forecast you trust, Framingham could get anywhere between 4 inches to a foot of snow. Framingham received more than 30 inches earlier this month from the Blizzard of 2013. The National Weather Service reported there is a "high probability for a strong coastal storm to impact Southern New England late Saturday night into Sunday. Possible heavy wet snow to portions of the region along with strong winds along the coast. Exact specifics are still uncertain at this time given it's still 3-4 days away." But WHDH-TV is predicting Framingham could see 8-12 inches from the storm this weekend…

Worst of the Blizzard of 2013 expected during the overnight hours in Framingham and MetroWest communities.
Nearly a foot of snow — or more — has fallen, but the worst is yet to come. Framingham and the rest of MetroWest will feel the full fury of The Blizzard of 2013 during the overnight hours as whiteout and blizzard conditions bury eastern Massachusetts. WHDH meteorologist Pete Bouchard says on his blog: Overnight and early Saturday morning. Travel is nearly impossible. White-outs, blizzard conditions, drifting snow and a vicious wind. Winds will gust near hurricane force (74mph or better) at times along the coast as the storm rounds Nantucket and heads east. 10am high tide is more of a concern because of the intense wind. Sandwich, Plymouth, Scituate and Cape Ann will experience MAJOR coastal flooding. Moderate flooding is expected in Revere…

The potential for accumulation is light, but the times it's expected could cause some headaches.
Just when you'd gotten used to 60-degree days, Old Man Winter reappears. Plan some extra time into your Wednesday morning commute as forecasters at WHDH are calling for a light snowy, rainy mix to begin falling at about 4 a.m. and continue throughout the day. According to Jeremy Reiner on the WHDH weather blog, this isn't expected to be a major storm, nor is he calling for the snow to fly faster than the plows can handle it. "It won't be a big, bad storm that gets a name or anything like that but it will create some issues for us," Reiner writes. WHDH's snow accumulation map shows areas around I-95 could see anywhere from 1-4 inches. The closer you get to the coast, the less snow is expected, with mostly rain expected within 2 miles of the…

DirecTV and Sunbeam reach an agreement.
DirecTV customers and New England Patriots fans can sit back and watch the Super Bowl in their own living room now that the company reached an agreement with Sunbeam earlier today. With this weekend's AFC win by the New England Patriots, local legislators got into the fight earlier this week and urged the two companies to come to terms before the Super Bowl would be blacked out in Boston and Florida. The dispute left about 200,000 DirecTV subscribers in the Boston TV market without access to NBC and the CW network programming, according to Boston.com. WHDH, the NBC affiliate in Boston, will broadcast the Super Bowl, so without an agreement, those people would not have been able to see the game. "We are pleased to have reached an agreement …
