Projected snowfall totals for this weekend's snowstorm have been significantly reduced.
How much snow will Stoughton get from this weekend's storm? Not as much as originally forecasted.

WCVB Channel 5 also projects 1-3 inches. 7 News has the Stoughton area near the boarder of getting 2 to 4 inches of snow and just 1 to 2.

AccuWeather.com long-range meteorologists are projecting a weak to moderate El Niño by late summer, which could mean more snow this winter.
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. Despite a rare snowstorm last October, the winter of 2011-2012 was mild and relatively snowless. There were no snow days in Stoughton (the Gibbons School was closed on January 20 due to a water main break) and the 180th school day came on the earliest possible date as a result - June 19, 2012. It was a stark contrast from the winter of 2010-2011 where the area saw one big snowstorm after another and Stoughton used five snow days by February 2, 2011. The Stoughton school schedule has five built-in snow days. The 2012-2013 school year in Stoughton starts…
