SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Western Massachusetts received a good soaking rain over the last couple of days with many areas picking up about a 1/2 inch of rainfall.
Despite the wet weather the U.S. Drought Monitor still has parts of western Massachusetts in the abnormally dry and moderate drought categories.
And now that it’s December it’s pretty typical that we start to get snow. On average we get our first inch of snowfall around November 23rd. So far this year we haven’t see any accumulating snowfall.
The sun was back out Thursday and it was cooler with winds gusting around 30 mph at times.
“I like it, it’s nice. I could take another month of this as long as we don’t get snow. It’s beautiful out today a little windy but not cold you can still walk in Forest Park and it’s beautiful,” said Andrea Morissette of East Longmeadow.
In fact even though we’re in December the grass is still looking pretty green due to the mild temperatures and recent rainfall.
And if you’re hoping for the cold and snow it looks like you might have to wait a little bit longer. The National Weather Service Outlook for December is calling for much above average temperatures here in the Northeast.
