Swampscott, Massachusetts — After-school activities in Swampscott were canceled Wednesday due to the latest expected burst of winter precipitation.
The school district announced late in the morning that all sports, meetings and other after-school activities for the day were cancelled. Schools were set to close on a regular basis.
The YMCA After School Program will continue to run. However, parents are encouraged to pick up their students as soon as possible.
This is the second time in three days that a game or other event has been canceled due to winter weather.
As with when up to 6.5 inches of snow began falling on the North Shore on Monday, late afternoon and early evening were expected to be the trickiest traveling conditions.
According to the National Weather Service, the North Shore will get about an inch of snow at the beginning of the storm before precipitation turns to heavy overnight rain.
The good news is that conditions are expected to dry out early on Thursday, with little rain or snow through the end of the weekend, and clear skies for the rest of the week as temperatures settle into the 40s on both Saturday and Sunday. .
