Cold air will move in starting Sunday night and get bitterly cold by Wednesday morning this week.
The coldest air of the winter, including temperatures that could get down to zero, are headed our way starting Sunday night, according to meteorologists. The coldest stretch of weather will be Tuesday night - Thursday morning," writes WHDH-TV meteorlogist Chris Lambert in his blog. 'Expect near zero degrees readings in the morning, and teens for highs Wednesday afternoon." The National Weather Service said that there is a "moderate probability" that a wind chill advisory may be issued on Tuesday night and Wednesday night. A wind chill advisory means that wind chill temperatures would be expected to be -25 degrees or less for at least three hours. That would mean that exposure to the combination of winds and low temperatures without …

A small storm expected to move in on Christmas Eve could mean a white Christmas this year.
It is plausible there will be a white Christmas in Hamilton and Wenham this year, according to meteorologists. "Overall, I'm not expecting a big storm, but one that could blanket many of us in southern New England with 1-3 inches of snow is certainly plausible at this point," writes Chris Lambert, a meteorologist at Patch news partner WHDH in his latest blog. "We only need 1 inch on the ground for an official white Christmas, so the level of optimism on that is rising, especially north and west of the City." The National Weather Service calls the chance of snow "likely" after 5 a.m. on Christmas morning, with the chance of snow 60 percent. The chance of snow remains "likely" through 1 p.m., the weather service said.

The exact path remains a mystery, but forecast models indicate Hurricane Sandy won't just swing out to sea as she heads north.
Is your Halloween costume waterproof? "There is a consensus forming in weather forecast models that hurricane Sandy is unlikely to go out to sea," according to The Washington Post. And there's more. The Washington Post goes on to report that Sandy will more likely merge with a cold front and transition into a "powerhouse, possibly historic" storm that forecasters expect to make landfall anywhere from the Mid-Atlantic states to northern New England or Canada. Oy. Chris Lambert on the WHDH weather blog reports that it will still be a few days until forecasters can say where Sandy -- or her "hybrid" remnants -- will make landfall, but the pieces of the puzzle are falling into place that would bring a powerful storm to the the Boston area on …

Forecasting models are split, with some saying powerful Hurricane Sandy will blow out to sea, while others think it'll smack into New England as a tropical storm or depression.
The National Hurricane Center has upgraded Sandy from a tropical storm to hurricane on Wednesday with sustained wind speeds of 80 miles per hour. The storm, bearing down on Jamaica at a pokey 14 miles per hour, is expected to hug the east coast. What happens after that, however, is anyone's guess. At this time of year, storms like Sandy usually track out to sea well before they reach New England. But WHDH meteorologist Chris Lambert writes that high pressure near Greenland may change the normal jet stream pattern, shuttling Sandy to our doorsteps. "If this were to occur, Sandy, which transitions into a massive Nor’easter, would provide an expanding shield of powerful winds and rain, bring in damaging gusts, flooding rains and coastal …

It's still too early to know for sure whether Tropical Storm Sandy will visit Hamilton and Wenham next week.
Meteorologists are now saying that many models are showing Tropical Storm Sandy will head off to sea after becoming a hurricane before reaching our area early next week, but there are still some models that show it could turn toward the east coast. It’s still too early to know for sure. The National Hurricane Center is predicting Sandy will become a category 1 hurricane on Wednesday when it hits Jamaica. On his weather blog on the 7News website, Chris Lambert said the storm will likely head for open waters of the Atlantic after hitting the Bahamas later this week, but it’s still early and there is a shot it may head toward New England and hit this area on Monday or Tuesday of next week. Lambert wrote: These models are relying on a very …
