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.

A second storm is headed to the area and could make driving hazardous on Saturday.
A second storm of the week is headed toward New England and will dump more snow onto the area on Saturday. 7News meteorologists are predicting Norwood to get between 2 to 4 inches of snow in the storm that is expected to start on Saturday afternoon and spread into the early hours of Sunday. The good news is that snow removal shouldn’t be a backbreaking endeavour. CBSBoston’s Todd Gutner said the snow will be “dry and fluffy for most,” though he warned that driving could be hazardous at times on Saturday.

The storm could drop 1 to 2 inches of rain late Wednesday into Thursday and bring wind gusts along the coast.
A little more than a week after 'superstorm' Sandy swept through Massachusetts, Norwood residents may have to brace for another windy, rainy night on Wednesday. A nor'easter could blow into the area mid-week and the storm could drop 1 to 2 inches of rain from Wednesday into Thursday, according to WHDH meteorologist Jeremy Rainer. Rainer also wrote that coastal winds could gust between 40 and 60 miles per hour along the South Shore, Cape Cod and the islands, although winds "will be much lighter inland with this storm."

No, this is not an April Fool's joke.
According to the National Weather Service, Norwood will be getting a mix of rain and snow turning entirely to snow overnight tonight and through the day tomorrow. Starting around 3:00 a.m. on April Fool's Day, the town will be getting another dose of snow amounting to less than half an inch before the morning commute on Friday and then another half to three-quarters of an inch throughout the day. The dusting the NWS is expecting may be inconvenient, but is in no way the 25.4 inches that were dropped on the city of Boston on April Fool's Day in 1997, the last time the area saw snow on the prankster holiday. No, this is not a joke.
