GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – On-and-off snow showers will move through western Massachusetts Thursday morning.

Snowfall totals, however, are expected to be light. Franklin County, Northern Berkshire County and Western Hampshire County should get the most snow, with accumulations from a coating to two inches. Hampden and eastern Hampshire Counties should only get a coating (less than 1″).

Drivers should give themselves extra time to get to school and work Thursday morning due to the timing of the snowfall.

The snow will be over around midday and as we head into the afternoon, temperatures should reach into the upper 30s to almost 40 degrees.

The 22News Storm Team will be tracking the snow showers Thursday on 22News during the Today Show.
