"Get email updates about the storm and more" 

Another snowstorm is headed this way and will bring high winds and frigid temperatures with it.

Snow should begin this afternoon and will intensify overnight.

The National Weather Service is predicting 6-10 inches for the Sharon area. Cape Cod and the Islands are expected to get hardest hit by the storm with blizzard conditions and 10 to 14 inches of snow expected.

A potential problem with this storm is wind gusts. Late Tuesday night and Wednesday morning should see wind gusts close to 40 mph, which could lead to power outages.

The temperatures will also wreak havoc. Highs are not expected to get out of the teens this week.

Here’s what weather forecasters are predicting for us:

The Schools Will be Closed on Wednesday
Due to the snowstorm, the Sharon Public Schools will be closed on Wednesday, Jan. 22 Kindergarten registration will be rescheduled. The School Committee's Open Budget Forum will be rescheduled and the community will be notified of the new meeting date.
