In the English children’s song, “I’ll Tell Me Ma,” the lyrics declare “Let the wind and the rain and the hail blow high/Snow come shovelin’ from the sky.”
And for the third time in 10 days, Belmont will witness another blast of shove-able snow as the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the area, beginning at 9 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 1, until 1 a.m., Tuesday, Feb. 3.
The warning, issued at 1 p.m. today, Sunday, Feb. 1, is calling for between 8 inches to a foot of heavy snow falling in Belmont and points north of the Mass Pike. Accompanying the snow will be moderate winds of between 5 to 15 mph with gusts up to 35 mph.
The possible foot of snow comes just days after the town and region dug itself out of more than 20 inches of snow that fell during a blizzard that occurred this past Tuesday, Jan. 27.
Snow will fall heavy at times Monday morning, Feb. 2, at 1 to 2 inches per hour, impacting the morning rush hour making for hazardous travel on snow covered roads.
