Three-to-five inches of snow could fall between Wednesday afternoon and Thursday afternoon.
Our snowless luck may have run out. Reading could see 3-5 inches of snow starting Wednesday afternoon through Thursday afternoon, according to a winter storm watch issued this morning by the National Weather Service (NWS). With fluctuating temperatures—a Wednesday high of 38 and Thursday high near 43—the snow should also mix in with sleet and freezing rain at times, the NWS said, although colder temperatures could linger longer than currently forecast, resulting in less sleet and freezing rain and more snow. "Snow is currently expected to overspread southern New England Wednesday afternoon and transition to a wintry mix Wednesday evening," the NWS statement read.

Area could pick up one to three inches, National Weather Service says.
Thursday and Friday were just too good to be true. After hitting 60 degrees late last week, the area got a rude return to winter with howling winds and bitter cold Saturday, and now there could be a couple inches of snow Monday. The National Weather Service is forecasting between one and three inches of snow Monday in North Reading. Snow is likely to begin falling after 4 a.m. and will continue into the afternoon, according to the weather service. The impact on the commute should be minimal, as schools are closed for vacation and many businesses are closed for the Presidents Day holiday. This weather system comes at a time when the town has spent $650,000 in snow and ice removal, straining resources and budgets, Town Administrator Greg …
