    (NECN: Alysha Palumbo, Bridgewater, Mass.) - Snow coated the roadways and even dropped a few inches in some cities and towns in New England Monday, but it's just a preview of what's to come over the week.

    "We're in a fairly active period, especially for the next seven to eight days," said Alan Dunham, a meteorologist for National Weather Service.

    It could be a triple threat of winter weather, with a second storm Tuesday night into Wednesday, and a third possible chance of snow Sunday night into Monday.

    "Models are starting to come together on that one, and it is looking like the morning commute is not going to be a lot of fun Wednesday morning," said Dunham. "We should have accumulating, wet snow on Wednesday morning, and then ending sometime late in the day."

    Dunham says the Sunday-Monday storm is too far out to predict with any certainty yet, but with temperatures hovering around the freezing mark instead of in the teens and single digits, this will be a much different snow than we've seen this winter.

    "Make sure you're in shape, take it easy, if anyone's going to be shoveling this snow," said Dunham.

    Some people say whether it's snow cleanup or driving through the winter weather, it could be worse.

    "It's New England. We should be used to it by now, right?" asked Warren Pansire of Natick, Mass.

    "This is unbelievable. But the ride today wasn't bad," said Tony Cabral of Warren, R.I. "Usually, when it snows, it feels like people who are practicing driving in the snow are out."
