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 Andover 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.

The snow that will roll through New England Tuesday will avoid accumulating throughout much of Massachusetts.
The only "storm" this week is forecast to mostly miss Andover, or at least bring no accumulation when it rolls through on Tuesday. The storm will bring overcast skies and snow along and below the Mass Pike line, according to Jeremy Reiner on the WHDH Channel 7 Weather Blog. This will be the only "storm" of the week, said Reiner, and take place midday into the late afternoon.

What do you think about National Grid's response to the power outages?
The freak October storm that struck the area on Saturday night and early Sunday morning is still crippling parts of the region.
