Salem Bracing for More Snow this Weekend

Salem may end up getting between four and eight inches of snow this weekend.

Salem Bracing for More Snow this Weekend

The snow from the Blizzard of 2013 may be melting, but don't go putting the shovels away just yet - this weekend is bringing us more snow.

A new snowstorm is headed our way for Saturday and Sunday, and Salem could end up seeing another 8 inches of snow before it's done.

On his blog, WHDH meteorologist Pete Bouchard is calling for light rain along the coast Saturday with snow inland and snow everywhere by Sunday morning. There may also be some coastal flooding.

    "Heavy snow through early morning Sunday. Roads will be tough to travel, and yes, your flight will most likely be delayed or cancelled. (Although I don't run an airline, so I'll let them have the final word.)," Bouchard writes.

    As of now, forecasts call for 4 to 8 inches to fall along the shoreline.

    If you're planning to stock up for the storm, you may want to do that as soon as possible. Just before our last snowstorm, Market Basket was so crowded that firefighters had to respond after learning that hundreds of people were waiting in long lines.

    So, if you'd like to avoid long lines and all that stress, consider gearing up for this next round of snow sometime today - before the mad rush begins.
