UPDATED: Spring-Like Temperatures to Follow Late-Season Snowstorm

Acton residents can expect ip to a foot of snow before the latest snowstorm moves out.

UPDATED: 12:05 P.M.

The stormy pattern that has pummeled Acton and neighboring towns continues today as residents have woken to enough snow to cancel school.

Acton Public Schools and Acton-Boxborough Regional High School both gave students a long weekend by cancelling school earlier today.

The Acton Police Department Police Department reported no accidents as of 8 a.m.

National Grid reported less than five power outages in North Acton as of 8 a.m.

According to WHDH meteorologist Jeremy Reiner, travel will be treacherous throughout the morning.

"It's not a good morning for travel across New England with bands of moderate to heavy snow marching inland (much like ocean swells approaching a beach)," he said on his blog. "The last of these snow bands — the caboose if you will — will begin to shift south through New England between 12-3 p.m. ..."

Residents can expect anywhere from 12-18 inches of snow before the storm departs.

Reiner said there will be plenty of melting this weekend, as temperatures are expected to spike.

"Temps tomorrow reach the mid 40s but on Sunday, we can see most towns away from that chilly ocean reach the low 50s," he said. "Even warmer early next week with partly sunny skies on Monday and temps between 55-60!
