There's a wide range of possibilities for snow with a snowstorm that is moving in on Saturday night.
After last weekend's blizzard, we can take it. That's most people's thinking as they look at a forecast that contains predictions of some accumulating snow on Saturday night. After the possibility of light snow on Saturday morning, about 3-6 inches of snow will accumulate on Saturday night, according to WHDH meteorologist Pete Bouchard. The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory. Saturday will actually start with a mix of light snow and rain that will "pester us" through the early afternoon. The more significant storm, where "90 percent of the snow" will fall, will start Saturday afternoon and last through Sunday morning. The snow will light and easily be blown around. The highest accumulations will be far from us on…

There is a potential for significant snow accumulation with a snowstorm slated to move in on Friday.
It’s still two days away, but weather forecasters are already sounding the alarm about a snowstorm headed our way on Friday that could the the largest since Boxing Day in 2010. The storm is forecasted to arrive two days after the 35th anniversary of the Blizzard of 1978. While Friday’s storm will be nowhere near the legendary storm in the late 70s, it could bring a foot of snow and be the largest storm to hit the area since the day after Christmas in 2010. “I think it's time to prepare for the biggest storm since December 26th and 27th of 2010,” WHDH-TV chief meteorologist Pete Bouchard writes in his latest blog post. “For the snow hounds, your ship might have finally come in.” Bouchard said there are several factors that lead him to …

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 …

The coldest air of the winter is moving in on Wednesday, but expected to move out by the weekend.
The coldest air of the winter to date - by far - is moving in to Hamilton and Wenham on Wednesday. Windchills are expected to be close to zero on Wednesday morning and possibly below zero on Thursday morning, which will be the coldest day since last February. The National Weather Service said that Wednesday morning's low temperature would be about 10 degree and Thursday morning's low temperature will be about 7 degrees with a wind chill of -2 degrees. The windchill temperature on Wednesday morning will be near 0, according to WHDH Chief Meteorlogist Pete Bouchard in his most recent blog, because of "a steady (not strong) breeze." "And although Thursday morning is colder, there isn't a lot of wind," he said. "Sun will dominate the short …

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.
