UPDATE: Winter Storm Advisory Issued for Danvers

The National Weather Service said snow is likely on Wednesday and Thursday this week.

Just when we were beginning to accept that this winter would be snowless, the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for much of New England, including Danvers, for this week.

The watch is in effect beginning Wednesday afternoon, and lasting through Thursday afternoon.

Snow, sleet, and freezing rains, with snow accumulations ranging from 3-5 inches are predicted.

As of Wednesday morning, the National Weather Service is forecasting:

  • Today: Snow, mainly after 3pm. Patchy fog after 4pm. High near 37. Calm wind becoming east between 6 and 9 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. Total daytime snow accumulation of around an inch possible.
  • Tonight: Snow. Patchy fog. Low around 29. East wind between 8 and 16 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible. 
  • Thursday: Snow. Patchy fog. High near 36. East wind between 14 and 16 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible. 
  • Thursday Night: Snow likely, mainly before 8pm. Patchy fog. Otherwise, cloudy, with a low around 23. North wind between 9 and 17 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%.

This 3-5 inch snowstorm may be considered a blizzard this year, but to put things in perspective: last year Danvers was and roughly 88 inches of snow.

On Thursday morning, check back to Danvers Patch for school and business closings, and check our Live Traffic Map.
