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-93 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 the…

Friday, December 28, 2012
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 Wilmington 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. Weather.com, meanwhile, anticipates that the area could see between two to five inches of the powdery white stuff. There are currently no National Weather Service alerts for Wilmington.

DPW, Police Department, report no issues after first snow of 2012.
Wilmington Department of Public Works employees were prepared for the first storm of the season. Turns out, there wasn’t much to be ready for. “This was hardly a storm,” said Assistant Public Works Superintendent Jamie Magaldi. “It was mostly a little bit of snow with mostly sleet and rain. We didn’t come in on overtime, it was just business as usual. We had a few salters heading out early, but that was essentially it.” It was a similar result for the Wilmington Police Department, which did not field any calls for major accidents on Thursday. Lt. Chris Neville said the only weather-related calls were smaller accidents. “It was relatively quiet,” said Neville. “It was mostly rain, and there were no icing conditions. Except for a few minor …
