Are we stuck in a plot from cinematic cult-comedy Groundhog Day, seemingly doomed to spend eternity in snow storms? After shoveling out of the sixth worst blizzard in Boston history, we're expecting another snow storm to dump anywhere from four to eight inches of new snow on top of that! ABC6 predicts heavy snow, mixing with rain, and 30+ mph winds expected here all day Monday, Groundhog Day. Being alongside the water, the Cape and Southeastern Mass. will receive the least amount of snow, compared to Boston and north, where accumulations can exceed 12 inches.

New Bedford Mayor Jon Mitchell has issued a citywide snow emergency parking ban to take effect at midnight on Sunday, Feb. 1. The parking ban will be strictly enforced and will remain in effect for 48 hours thereafter, unless lifted or further extended. Should you have any snow removal issues, you're asked to call the Department of Public Infrastructure at (508) 991-6150.

Since it will be overcast Monday, hopefully Punxsutawney Phil will not see his shadow, thus bringing us an early spring! One other hopeful note of interest, actor Bill Murray, self-centered and sour TV meteorologist Phil Connors in Groundhog Day, saved the life of a man who was choking while dining at the Copper Blues restaurant and comedy spot in Phoenix, Arizona, a few days ago. Murray said, " I actually learned the Heimlich maneuver while working on the movie Groundhog Day. I'm glad I was able to get some good use of the skill outside the movies."
