PALMER, Mass. (WWLP) – We’re getting hit with snow for the second time this February. Eastern Hampden County is suppose to see the most snowfall in western Massachusetts. This is thanks to another coastal storm that’s just skimming our area.
What seems like the “jackpot spots” so far this winter season, not once but twice now, seems to be eastern Hampden county.
From Friday’s snowstorm towns like Brimfield, Monson, Wales, and Holland saw more than eight inches of snow. Friday’s snow was from a coastal storm that just skimmed western Massachusetts. Which is what we’re seeing again.
Sue from Palmer told 22News that they are ready to begin the shoveling out process, “We don’t have a snow blower but we have shovels our neighbor helped us out the other day which was really sweet.”
We left January snow deprived. We’re finally seeing two different storm systems that brought us accumulating snowfall for the month of February
This is an intense storm system that is several hundreds of miles away out to sea. But because of its intensity it’s outer bands are dropping off snow.
Eastern Massachusetts will be seeing much more snow than us as the storm moves northeast. Towns including Nantucket and Cape Cod have seen Blizzard warnings.
As for western Massachusetts, we’ll continue to stay on the outskirts.
From the lack of snow last month and the fact that we’ve been measuring inches not feet so far, most people don’t have too much of a problem.
