Forecasters are warning that the timing of an approaching snowstorm may make the Monday afternoon and evening commute slippery.
There may be an inch or two of snow on the ground on Monday evening during the evening commute, according to forecasters at WHDH-TV. "Don't expect a ton of snow, but a general 1-3" falls late Monday afternoon, through the evening, producing slick roads, perhaps in time for the ride home from work," writes meterologist Chris Lambert in his latest blog. Even though not much snow will fall, Lambert said that the snow "will create slick spots on the roads Monday evening and Monday night." The National Weather Service forecasts that the snow will start after 2 p.m. The precipitation will change over to sleet later in the evening. The weather service predicts that less than an inch of snow will fall. Lambert also said the snow will change over …

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 Danvers 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.

Danvers can expect another storm shortly after Sandy moved out.
First Sandy, and now a Nor'easter. Massachusetts is in store for more wild weather as a Nor'easter heads our way Wednesday and into Thursday morning. According to WHDH meteorologist Chris Lambert, Danvers can expect to see the storm hit between 2 and 4 p.m. "What I've noticed over the last few model runs is a track farther east," Lambert said on his blog. "If that's the case, our wind stays more out of the NNE rather than going east, and that means colder weather gets locked in. It also means that dew point levels stay low. That's important because with dew points running near 20 and actual air temperatures (Wednesday) afternoon running near 40-45, a process called evaporative cooling can occur which allows rain to turn to snow. What …

If Hurricane Sandy takes a more northern track, significant impacts are possible in Danvers and on the North Shore.
The latest track of Hurricane Sandy has the storm pushing farther west according to Friday's meteorologist reports. The National Hurricane Center has the center of the storm going either into Southern New Jersey or Delaware. This is a constantly changing storm and a more northern track, which is possible, would bring more significant impacts to Danvers and the North Shore. According to WHDH Meteorologist Chris Lambert, the current likely scenario would bring wind and rain Monday afternoon through Tuesday with wind gusts of 40-60 miles per hour, mostly onshore, strongest at the coast with up to 5 inches of rain expected throughout the storm’s duration. Power outages are likely, along with beach erosion and coastal flooding during high …

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 …

It's still too early to know for sure whether Sandy will visit New England.
Meteorologists are now saying that many models are showing Tropical Storm Sandy will head off to sea after becoming a hurricane before reaching New England 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 …
