First day of spring will feel more like winter

Strong wind and cold temp have people shaking their heads as the first day of spring approaches

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Friday is the first day of spring… only it won’t feel very spring-like in Springfield.

Daniel Lausier, of Executive Parking, spends his days outside, checking the parking meters. With strong wind gusts pushing the wind chill downtown into the teens, he had a hard time believing the season change is upon us.

“Too cold for this, the wind has been crazy. The wind chill makes it at least 10 to 15 degrees colder than what the weather actually is. I mean, you’ve got to deal with what you’ve got to deal with,” said Lausier.

22News Storm Team Meteorologist, Nick Banin, says it won’t really feel like spring until the first or second week in April.
