Snow is set to make for a slippery Tuesday morning commute.
With a forecast 4 to 8 inches of snow set to hit Marlborough 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.

Final snow fall numbers throughout the greater Marlborough area top 1 foot.
As the snow slows down the final numbers are coming in for snow fall in the greater Marlborough area and they are all topping out at more than a foot of snow which fooled even seasoned meteorologists. "I was hoodwinked into believing a storm scooting into the Atlantic wouldn't produce nearly two feet of snow across the Commonwealth," write WHDH Channel 7 Boston Chief Meteorologist Jeremy Reiner on the Channel 7 Weather Blog. "We were lulled into believing the storm played its best hand yesterday: snow fell and melted on contact. Big gaps opened up and the sun briefly poked out. Stay the course, we thought." As you can tell by looking out any nearby window, the storm decided to return in force on Friday. "But the storm stalled. Then it …

The snow fall is set to increase as we close in on the evening commute.
The latest weather report from WHDH Channel 7 Boston points to snow increasing as the evening commute approaches. The storm front has hung onto the South East portion of the state, pulling forecasts for 6 to 10 inches of snow down towards Providence and Plymouth. Marlborough is still within the area expected to get 3 to 6 inches of snow. The slow start of the storm does not indicate its true potential, said forecasters. Plan on widespread-steady snow for just about everyone tonight---this is when we get most of our accumulating snows," writes Jeremy Reiner in the Channel 7 Weather Blog. The snow will continue to be steady throughout the afternoon and into the night, he writes.
Mother nature is aiming to shake your Spring fever with some snow.
Accumulations will vary throughout the area today, but one thing is for sure — Spring has not sprung. "Your heart may have gone on (and on) to spring, but Mother Nature doesn't want to let go," writes WHDH Channel 7 Chief Meteorologist Pete Bouchard on the station's weather blog. "Another nor'easter is bearing down on New England, and unlike the past few storms, this one wants to spend a little time to get to know us." The fact that most of us are sick of winter means nothing to Mother Nature, Bouchard reminds everyone in his blog post. The snow totals will vary from this storm that will drop the flakes throughout the day. Receive breaking news in your inbox or on your smartphone by signing up for our newsletter.

National Weather Service: Six to 10 inches are expected.
Winter isn't over yet, despite spring officially starting in roughly two weeks. Six to 10 inches of snow—and the heavy, wet stuff that can cause power outages—are coming, the National Weather Service in Taunton says. Late this afternoon, the agency issued a winter storm watch for much of Southern New England, including Worcester, from late Wednesday night into Friday morning. Patch is monitoring the storm and will have updates as news becomes available.
