Another winter storm is headed our way, with the forecast calling for snowfall through the Tuesday morning commute.
Mother Nature is making sure winter will last until the bitter end this year. On the last full day of winter Tuesday, forecasters are calling for several inches of accumulating snow - and possibly more - starting late Monday night and last into Tuesday morning. The storm will make driving "treacherous" late Monday night into Tuesday morning, with a "high impact on the Tuesday morning commute," according to the National Weather Service. Additionally, "travel will be slow at best on well treated surfaces and quite difficult on any unplowed or untreated surfaces." A winter storm watch has been issued for Danvers starting on Monday at 9 p.m. and runing through 11 a.m. on Tuesday. The winter storm watch means the weather service predicts an …

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.

A small storm will move in on Sunday at about the time of the Super Bowl kickoff.
The continuing theme of storms this winter will likely continue on Sunday evening - a small storm that will likely deliver just enough snow to make the roads slippery. "It's not a biggie, or a least it won't be as it moves over us Sunday afternoon and evening," writes WHDH-TV meteorologist Pete Bouchard in his recent blog post. "Nonetheless, roads may slicken a bit, and there might even be enough to put the plow blade down on Cape Cod...Despite all its potential, the amounts will leave the snow hounds wanting." Bouchard's forecast maps shows an expected 1-2 inches of snow for the immediate coast, including Cape Ann and areas to the east of I-95. Danvers is in that area. Just to the west, Bouchard predicts just a coating. The National …

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.

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…

Author and television investigative reporter Hank Phillipi Ryan will appear at the Peabody Institute Library in Danvers on Thursday night at 7 p.m.
Once again, “the other woman” has been in the headlines in recent days.

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 …
