Cascading Waters can be found at 135 Olean Street on the eastern edge of Worcester's northwest parklands, the Cascades. The Cascades are 350 acres of park and conservation lands along the borders of Worcester, Paxton, and Holden, Massachusetts. Home to countless species of plants and animals, the Cascades are open to passive recreation year-round.

Snow coming

Snow is coming, and some of it already fell before switching over to rain.

12:01 p.m. and:
The Cascades Brook is presently running at 5.4";
The temperature is 40 degrees F;
The pressure is at 29.23" and steady;
The sky is overcast, it is spitting rain, and there is a fair breeze;
The USFS Fire Danger Class is at LOW.

The predictions call for a confused mix. No one really knows what the final result will be.
Pavement should fair well as it retains heat well and snow won't accumulate well when and if it falls.
Bare ground cools faster and could see more accumulation.
I have heard that this area could possibly see as much as 3-6" before this is over, but that it will all melt as soon as temps rise on Sunday.

We here are hopeful for snow.
