We are in the midst of a very active weather pattern. In less than a week, another plowable snow event is expected during the day Sunday. Unlike the last storm, this one will be more of a quick mover, starting Sunday mid-morning and continuing until just after 9 p.m.

This storm is expected to drop between 3-6 inches from north to south, respectively. Places like Hampton, Seabrook, Newton, and Plaistow may see up to 7-8 inches.

The Newburyport area may be the jackpot area, on the Seacoast at least, with upwards of 8-9 inches of snow. South of Boston could see up to 12 inches of snow, so if you're heading south of our area, prepare for horrible driving conditions.

If you plan on traveling on Sunday, you’ll want to prepare for difficult driving conditions. When driving in the winter, you’ll also want to make sure your winter driving kit is ready. Always charge up your cell phones and gas that car up before heading out in a snowstorm.

The key to driving in snow is to allow a lot of extra time to get to your destination. The best option would be to just have a lazy Sunday at home and enjoy the Super Bowl safely.

I'll be rooting for Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.
