A Danvers man was pulled from a burning car on I-95 earlier this week.
A Danvers man was pulled from his burning car just before it exploded earlier this week, following a crash on I-95 in Peabody, reports Patch news partner WHDH. The crash happened early Tuesday morning. Howie Lane of Essex was plowing the road at about 2 a.m. when he heard "a big noise" that "jolted the truck," he told channel 7. Lane went into action. The Jeep that struck the plow was on fire and the driver inside - later identified as Franco Carullo, 35, of Danvers - was unconscious. Long and his plowing partner pulled the man — whose pants had caught on fire — from the Jeep. The door was locked so he smashed the window to get to Carullo.

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 …

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 annual warm-up known as the "January thaw" is moving in this weekend.
A "January thaw" is moving in, according to meteorologists at WHDH-TV. "Our annual January Thaw is upon us for the next several days," Ch. 7 meteorologist Jeremy Reiner posted in his blog on Tuesday. For the past three days, the entire staff of the Ch. 7 "Weather Center" has been blogging about the mild temperatures. Typically, the January thaw happens between Jan. 20-26 and is happening slightly earlier than usual this year, Reiner said. But it will be a thaw in what has already been a mild winter. Meteorologist Pete Bouchard said there have been only 9 days with below normal temperatures since the meteorological start to winter on Dec. 1. The National Weather Service forecasts that high temperatures in Danvers will be in the 40s through …

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 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 term forecast too and …

Two separate storms forecasted to move across Danvers next week could drop accumulating snow, with a greater chance later on in the week.
A two part winter storm that could first move in on Sunday and last through Thursday could possibly bring some of the first measurable snow of the winter to Danvers. Pete Bouchard, chief meteorologist at Patch news partner WHDH-TV, said in a blog post Wednesday that the first storm from Sunday afternoon through Monday will have light precipitation. And that favors a greater chance of "wet than white," since heavy precipitation can pull in its own cold air. And Bouchard's co-worker, Jeremy Reiner, agreed by saying that "it does not look like a big storm" and "it does look like a cold storm." He expects some patchy light snow and flurries all day on Sunday. But Reiner thinks that the storm has the potential to become a major storm to include…
