Third Straight Weekend Storm to Deliver Heavy, Wet Snow

The snow from this weekend's storm will be heavy and wet, a change from past storms that was light and easily drifted.

Heavy, wet snow will move in Saturday afternoon and accumulate more than six inches, the National Weather Service said as it issued a winter storm watch.

The winter storm watch runs from Saturday afternoon through Sunday afternoon and means the potential of accumulating snow of six or more inches in a 12 hour period or eight or more Inches in a 24 hour period.

The heaviest snow in Danvers will be on Saturday night into Sunday morning when 1 to 2 inches of snow could fall per hour.

“The biggest concern is that this will be a heavy wet snow,” the weather service said as it issued the winter storm watch. “This will bring the potential for downed tree limbs and scattered power outages.”

The wind will blow from the northeast at 5-10 miles per hour through the storm with gusts to 20 mph with temperatures in the low 30s.
