UPDATED: Snow Emergency Called For Dedham
The National Weather Service issues another winter storm warning for Dedham.
It just never ends, does it?
Days after the last winter storm warning for the town, Dedham faces its third in two weeks this morning.
The National Weather Service stated that the area could receive up to another 8 inches of snow. The warning began at 2 a.m. and is scheduled to last until 3 p.m.
"Snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour are possible and roads will quickly become snow covered and slippery," the warning stated.
The Town of Dedham has issued a snow emergency alert through 5 p.m. Friday. Residents are asked to park in their driveways, if they have one, or on the odd side of the street.
Several cars were towed Tuesday and following last week's storm because plows couldn't pass through, according to police logs.
Winds are expected to range between 10 and 20 mph with temperatures in the mid-20s. Visibility will be a quarter-mile at times, according to the NWS.
With snow accumulating on top of roads blanketed with ice from Tuesday's freezing rain, Dedham Fire Chief William Cullinane said commuters who need to get to work should be careful on the roadways.
