Massachusetts bracing for another storm with effects from Sandy still being felt.
First Sandy, and now a Nor'easter. Massachusetts is in store for more wild weather this week as a Nor'easter heads our way today and into Thursday morning.

It also means that dew point levels stay low. That's important because with dew points running near 20 and actual air temperatures tomorrow afternoon running near 40-45, a process called evaporative cooling can occur which allows rain to turn to snow. What …
