Steady snow through the afternoon and tonight

Once again, Western Massachusetts will be on the edge of another winter storm

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Another winter storm three days after our last one brought some similarities and some big differences.

The tricky part of the forecast is due to how FAR away the center of the storm is; in this case, hundreds of miles offshore. Usually, storms that far away don’t bring us snow, but this one has a wide area of precipitation and stronger winds higher in the sky should push some of the moisture our way.

Here’s what we’re expecting now:

Timing:

  • Snow Continues Through the Afternoon and Evening, Heavy at Times
  • 9pm-3am: Steady snow slowly fading

Snow Type:

  • All Snow, No Rain or Mix
  • Snow will fall as a dry/fluffy snow for the rest of the storm
  • Snow will blow and drift from time to time
  • Overall snow should be drier than the last storm, making it not as heavy to clear away

Accumulation Amounts:

  • Western Berkshire County, Northern Berkshire County, Western Frankin County: 1-3″
  • Most of the Pioneer Valley: 3-5″
  • Eastern Hampshire, Eastern Hampden Counties: 4-8″
  • Here’s our updated snowfall forecast map

We’ll continue to track any changes to the track which could impact snowfall amounts on 22News this morning.
