SouthCoast Snow Totals Were Wide-Ranging and Fun to Play In
For most of us, it was not the eight inches of snow predicted, but clearly folks on the SouthCoast saw enough snow to want to get out and play in it. We asked for your best snow day photos and you certainly didn't let us down.
Depending on where you live around here, the snow was in some locations pretty deep and in others it was barely a dusting. According to the National Weather Service (NWS), snowfall totals across Massachusetts ranged anywhere from one inch of snow to nearly 13 inches of snow.
Locally, Mansfield saw the most snow with 9.5 inches reported by NWS as of 1 p.m. this afternoon. New Bedford had the least snow in Bristol County with about four inches of fluffy white stuff.
NWS spotters were reporting all morning as the storm passed our way, and after it was all said and done, here are the accumulations they recorded from most to least in our neck of the woods.
Marion: 6.8 inches
Dighton: 6.4 inches
Somerset: 6.2 inches
Bourne: 6.1 inches
Rehoboth: 6.0 inches
Lakeville: 6.0 inches
Swansea: 5.0 inches
New Bedford: 4.0 inches
Falmouth: 4.0 inches
Though not every local city and town has a spotter reporting to the National Weather Service, I think it's safe to say there was definitely enough snow for sledding, snowman building and good old-fashioned snowball fights here on the SouthCoast.
So how did you spend your snow day? We asked for your snow day pics and here's some of what you sent our way.
