A winter weather advisory has been issued for Wednesday.
A small snowstorm is expected to roll in just as the morning rush hour starts on Wednesday. The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for Hamilton and Wenham through 3 p.m. because 2-4 inches of snow is expected. The storm could actually end up being the biggest storm of the year in the two towns, where only 3-4 inches of snow fells on Dec. 30 in the first storm of the winter. “The snow will continue through mid morning, but probably change to rain and sleet by late morning or early afternoon before tapering off,” the weather service said in issuing its advisory. Untreated roads are expected to be slippery on Wednesday morning with reduced visibility too.

A few inches of snow are expected to accumulate on Saturday night in what will be the first accumulating snow of the winter.
The first significant accumulation of snow of the winter is expected on Saturday afternoon and evening, with at least a few inches expected in Hamilton and Wenham. The snow is expected to begin early Saturday afternoon and last through Sunday morning.

A storm that is forecasted to move across New England on Wednesday night through Thursday is unlikely to bring any snow to Hamilton and Wenham.
Only rain is expected in Hamilton and Wenham from a storm on Wednesday night and Thursday that could drop as much as a foot of snow to the north. Wednesday night's storm will be "loaded with moisture and energy as well as warm air" and keep it almost entirely rain in Danvers, writes WHDH-TV meteorlogist Jeremy Reiner in a blog post on Christmas Day. It was exactly two years ago - the day after Christmas (Boxing Day) that more than a foot fell on the North Shore. The precipitation will start between 8-10 p.m. on Thursday and may be snow for a short time to start. Then it will change to rain and a total of 1-2 inches of rain will fall, with gusty winds too on Thursday morning and early afternoon. A more serious threat of accumulating snow is…

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.

There will be several storms moving across the area all week that are expected to all bring rain to Hamilton and Wenham.
The light coating of white we saw on the ground Sunday afternoon is likely all the snow we’ll see as part of several storms that will move across Hamilton and Wenham this week, according to the National Weather Service. The greatest chance of snow will come to the northwest of the two towns. On Monday night into Tuesday, the next storm will bring “mainly rain” to the area, the weather service said. Then on Tuesday night into Wednesday northwest winds could really pick up. Winds during that time could prompt a wind advisory, the weather service said. And finally, on Thursday night into Friday, another storm will again “probably bring mainly rain” with a greater chance of snow to start the storm for inland areas.

Expect mostly rain from Wednesday's Nor'Easter on the North Shore and snow outside of Route 495.
A nor'easter will kick up winds and rain in the region today, with sleet and snow likely north and west of Hamilton and Wenham and in the higher elevations. According to WHDH meteorologist Chris Lambert, the precipitation should start between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., which would impact the afternoon commute. Atmospheric conditions may convert falling rain into snow in Hamilton and Wenham, though that would mean merely a dusting on grass before quickly melting away. The actual rain/snow line is harder to predict. "I don't expect much, if any accumulation in the Boston area, maybe a slushy coating around Rte. 128 on grassy surfaces as rain and snow battle it out for a few hours in the early evening," wrote Lambert on the 7 Weather Blog. "The snow …

AccuWeather.com long-range meteorologists are projecting a weak to moderate El Niño by late summer, which could mean more snow this winter.
It's not even winter yet - in fact fall doesn't begin until September 22 - but Accuweather.com reports that unlike last winter, students (and teachers) can expect more snow days this winter. Despite a rare snowstorm last October, the winter of 2011-2012 was mild and relatively snowless. Last winter was a welcome reprieve from the year before. Hamilton-Wenham was out of school for weeks as snow piled on the high school roof, making it unsafe for students. Based on the Accuweather.com report, school may get out closer to the end of June this year. While Accuweather does not release its full winter forecast until October, Accuweather meteorologist Meghan Evans writes, "Following a snow drought during winter 2011-2012, the mid-Atlantic and …

Up to five inches of snow is expected to accumulate between Wednesday afternoon and Thursday evening in what forecasters are calling a long duration storm.
