CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The speed limit is being reduced on the Massachusetts Turnpike as heavy snow falls in the Berkshires and the hilltowns of western Hampden County. Snow is mixing with rain in the lower Pioneer Valley.
Due to these conditions, the speed limit is now 45 miles per hour from Chicopee to the New York state line.
22News Storm Team Meteorologist Brian Lapis says that anywhere from two to five inches of snow could fall in the Berkshires and the Hilltowns, with a coating of snow more likely in the valley and points east.
