A *WINTER STORM WATCH* will be in effect from Wednesday morning through Thursday morning.

It’s a short work week for a lot of you out there, so I’m sure that puts you in a great mood on a Monday morning!

Clearly, Mother Nature’s mood ring is a gross brown since we are waking up to steady rain this morning *and* we are tracking our first snowstorm of the season!

Lets start with today..

Things will start to dry up through the afternoon, but we won’t be able to shake the clouds and breezy conditions.  It’s tough to complain about the wind when it’s the reason behind a mild day – that southerly breeze will help boost temperatures close to 60°.

The clouds will gradually clear out overnight as the mercury slides back into the mid-40s.

Tuesday will be the nicest day of the week!  We’ll enjoy plenty of sunshine tomorrow with highs in the mid-50s!

Hands down – Wednesday will be the ugliest day of the week!  We are tracking a Nor’easter for Wednesday, which means accumulating snow and windy conditions.  Please don’t clear out the milk and bread aisle yet!!  We are still trying to get a better handle on exact snowfall totals, but if you absolutely had to twist my arm, I would say western Massachusetts is looking at about 6″..possibly more in eastern Hampden and Hampshire Co.  I’m not putting all of my chips on red, but 6″ is a good starting point for this particular storm.

We’ll be back under mostly sunny skies on Thanksgiving, but the roads could still be slippery and slushy..not that that would deter most people from getting to the turkey and stuffing..

We got ya covered!
