The potential for accumulation is light, but the times it's expected could cause some headaches.
Just when you'd gotten used to 60-degree days, Old Man Winter reappears. Plan some extra time into your Wednesday morning commute as forecasters at WHDH are calling for a light snowy, rainy mix to begin falling at about 4 a.m. and continue throughout the day. According to Jeremy Reiner on the WHDH weather blog, this isn't expected to be a major storm, nor is he calling for the snow to fly faster than the plows can handle it. "It won't be a big, bad storm that gets a name or anything like that but it will create some issues for us," Reiner writes. WHDH's snow accumulation map shows areas around I-95 could see anywhere from 1-4 inches. The closer you get to the coast, the less snow is expected, with mostly rain expected within 2 miles of …

A second storm is headed to the area and could make driving hazardous on Saturday.
A second storm of the week is headed toward New England and will dump more snow onto the area on Saturday. 7News meteorologists are predicting Woburn to get between 2 to 4 inches of snow in the storm that is expected to start on Saturday afternoon and spread into the early hours of Sunday. The good news is that snow removal shouldn’t be a backbreaking endeavour. CBSBoston’s Todd Gutner said the snow will be “dry and fluffy for most,” though he warned that driving could be hazardous at times on Saturday.

Massachusetts is bracing for more adverse weather.
Massachusetts and the Northeast is in store for more weather this week as a nor'easter heads our way Wednesday and into Thursday morning. The National Weather Service is predicting strong winds around 22 mph with gusts up to 58 mph. Additionally, the storm will be bringing chilly temperatures and rain – possibly even 1 to 2 inches of snow. The nor'easter is expected to hit the Northeast from Cape Cod down to New York City, which was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy last week. This incoming storm's winds are expecting to be even more damaging as many trees, limbs and structures have already been weakened by last week's superstorm. NSTAR stated in a release yesterday that it is prepared for the storm: As the region braces for tomorrow’s nor’…

Now classified as a hurricane, Sandy may bring rain and wind to New England on Sunday and Monday. Halloween Parade is scheduled for Sunday.
Forecasters are saying it's more likely that Sandy will bring rain and wind to the Boston area late Sunday and through Monday, but how much is still the question. The Lions' Halloween Parade is schedule to go on "rain or shine," so it is likely that the storm will have no affect on the parade. Reclassified as a hurricane on Wednesday and bearing down on Jamaica, Hurricane Sandy may still head off to sea before hitting the east coast. But forecasters say it’s looking more likely that New England will feel at least part of the brunt of Sandy. Channel 5’s Harvey Leonard said to expect beach erosion, coastal flooding and wind damage. NECN’s Matt Noyes said he is confident that there will be rain and wind likely Sunday night through Monday. …

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 …

A system likely to become Tropical Storm Sandy is on a track toward the East Coast.
Do you remember that snowstorm that dumped snow and left large areas without power for days last October? You know, the one that threatened our Halloween parade? Well, get ready for another potential Halloween storm. This time it likely won't bring snow to New England, but it could bring heavy rain and damaging wind early next week. A tropical depression in the central Caribbean may strengthen to become a tropical storm by Tuesday (Oct. 23). Tropical Depression 18 has maximum sustained winds of only 30 mph on Monday afternoon, but the system is expected to intensify quickly and could be near hurricane strength (winds of at least 74 mph) as it approaches Jamaica on Wednesday. The tropical storm would be named Sandy, the 19th named storm …
