BLANDFORD, Mass. (WWLP) – The recent mild weather we’ve had is moving out and the rain and snow are moving in.

Winter Storm Warning and Winter Weather Advisories for parts of Western Massachusetts

A winter weather advisory is in effect until 5 a.m. Monday for western Franklin, Hampshire, Hampden counties, and until noon Sunday for Berkshire County.

With these new weather conditions, drivers should anticipate a little extra time on the roads.

All of this windy weather is knocking down more leaves off of trees, which drivers should look out for. Wet leaves can cause your tires to lose contact with the road surface, making it just as dangerous as driving on ice and snow.
