Bitter temperatures will follow the storm on Sunday.
UPDATED: 1:38 P.M. Don't let the bare ground outside your window fool you. Winter is still here and it's about to prove that to local residents on Saturday. There is a good chance most of Massachusetts, including Sudbury, will see accumulating snow as a low-pressure system moves up the East Coast, tracking south of New England, according to the National Weather Service. The combination of the storm's track, along with Arctic air sinking from the north, will bring accumulating snow to the region. Winter weather advisories will likely be needed for a large portion of Southern New England. Early Friday afternoon the NWS predicted 2-4 inches for Saturday. But a shift in the storm's track could change the type of wintry precipitation and …

Share you photos of today's snowstorm here at Sudbury Patch.
The fourth snowstorm of the season forced the closure of schools and delayed openings of town offices today in Sudbury. Roads in town were slushy around noon, forcing traffic to go at a slower than normal pace. The Sudbury Police Department reported no accidents at the lunchtime hour. By 12:15 p.m., close to 6 1/2 inches had already fallen, according to WBZ, but glimpses of sun could be seen as the snowfall had stopped. Snow piles in the parking lot at Sudbury Crossing are approaching two stories in some places, forcing plows and tractors to be creative in where they move the snow. See the pictures below of the tractors clearing the lot.
Schools canceled, town offices delay openings, some athletic events may still be on.
