1. AccuWeather Forecasts More Snow Days for Stoughton Students this School Year
It's not even winter yet - in fact fall doesn't begin until September 22 - but Accuweather.com reports that unlike last winter, students (and teachers) can expect more snow days this winter.
While Accuweather does not release its full winter forecast until October, Accuweather meteorologist Meghan Evans writes, "Following a snow drought during winter 2011-2012, the mid-Atlantic and southern New England will get a snow dump this winter."
What does this mean for Stoughton? .
