There will be several storms moving across the area all week that are expected to all bring rain to much of the state.
The light coating of white we saw on the ground Sunday afternoon is likely all the snow we’ll see as part of several storms that will move across much of the state, including Sharon, this week, according to the National Weather Service. The greatest chance of snow will come to the northwest of the two towns. On Monday night into Tuesday, the next storm will bring “mainly rain” to the area, the weather service said. Then on Tuesday night into Wednesday northwest winds could really pick up. Winds during that time could prompt a wind advisory, the weather service said. And finally, on Thursday night into Friday, another storm will again “probably bring mainly rain” with a greater chance of snow to start the storm for inland areas.

Rainer also wrote that coastal winds could gust between 40 and 60 miles per hour along the South Shore, Cape Cod and the islands, although winds "will be much lighter inland with this storm."

Sharon High School will still host Saturday's varsity football game against King Philip Regional High School, Sharon High Athletic Director Robert Sondheim said today.
