Southborough Emergency Management shared a weather update, along with a forecast map. Based on the sound of things, it looks like school kids and many commuters will likely be forced to enjoy a 4-day weekend.

(Wondering what goes into the decision making process? In 2011, Susan interviewed then-Superintendent Gobron to find out. Read about that here.)
