The Storm Magnet: Warmer weather means ice dams!

I hope everyone is staying warm here in Southbridge! Expect a gradual warmup to begin tomorrow (Monday) with a high near 30…..but also be alert for some flakes in the afternoon. Nothing major, mainly a dusting, but it may make goings slick for a short time. Remember…with the few days of 30-40 degree weather…that will make for the perfect time to get out those roof rakes and remove the snow around the perimeter of your roof (about a foot in from the edges) and allow the sun to begin melting and preventing ice damns.

Dan Butler has always enjoyed keeping local folks informed about weather events especially during storm season. He is an NWS certified storm spotter and has two years of training with the Taunton office of the national weather service for southern New England.
