AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) – Western Massachusetts saw a wide range of precipitation this morning depending on the temperature where you were. 22News is working for you with how normal this may or may not be for this time of the year.
Instead this is what last winter looked like, a couple of inches of snow on the ground in January. However, so far this month, its been just the opposite, green and brown lawns fill western Massachusetts.
Some residents saw some snow today, but that did not last too long as temperatures warmed up throughout the day.
22News ran into two girl scouts selling cookies in Agawam, where rain only fell.
Alison Boucher, from Agawam, told 22News, “Last year when we did our cookie booth it was freezing were were standing out in the cold for like two hours.”
Another girl scout from Agawam told 22News she doesn’t like this winter so far, “Cause I like the snow and the fact that its raining and turning into slush I don’t like it.”
So far for January temperatures have been more above average than they have been average. Currently being in the middle of January and not seeing piles of snow on the ground is a bit unusual. Our average snowfall for western Massachusetts in January is about 14 inches.
22News also talked to one woman who just got back from Florida recently telling 22News after getting off the plane she did not have to change some of her attire.
Noreen Vinciguerra, from Feeding Hills, told 22News, “I came home with my flips flops on and I was like ‘Oh My God’ I’m going to be freezing and it wasn’t I was surprised it was nice.”
Winter is still on going.
Rockies Ace Hardware in Agawam, is fully stocked and ready to go when the snow decides to fall. From shovels to sledding gear hang on the shevles.
