Tuesday’s Nor’easter was supposed to produce the first significant snowfall of the season in Plymouth. But the forecast dramatically changed as the storm system slid to the south, leaving little more than a coating of snow in most areas of town.

The National Weather Service had issued a winter storm warning that included Plymouth, but the hazardous conditions predicted never came to be. But with temperatures falling below freezing as darkness approached Tuesday, driveways, sidewalks, and some roadways were becoming icy and treacherous.

Plymouth public schools, Town Hall, the public libraries, and the Center for Active Living were closed on Tuesday.

A parking ban that took effect at 7 a.m. Tuesday has been lifted. (For future reference – if it ever snows in Plymouth again – the map below shows the areas where parking will be off limits.)

By late Tuesday, the clouds were breaking. Wednesday is expected to be sunny, with daytime highs in the 30s.
