After the first measurable snowfall this autumn, the Boston area will have better weather over the next few days. A nor’easter, moving off into the Atlantic and toward Newfoundland, was responsible for 6”+ snowfall totals across portions of interior New England. Winds also gusted over 50 mph across the Cape, whipping up mostly rain and some snow. Here in Cambridge, about 1-2” of snow was visible on grassy areas Wednesday night. The Weather Channel, which has decided to name winter storms, named this past storm after a familiar Greek goddess — Athena.
