Get ready for a major warm up western Massachusetts

We are entering what is typically the coldest time of the year

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – What a difference 24 hours makes. Sunday morning we broke a record low, getting down to -21 degrees. We started off Monday morning anywhere from 28 to 37 degrees warmer than the day before.

We are in for a major warm up compared to these past couple of weeks, especially since we haven’t felt temperatures in the 30s since Christmas. Since then, we have only reached temperatures in the 20s, teens, and single digits.

We are entering what is typically the coldest time of the year: January 8 through January 20. This time period is when average high temperatures are around 31 degrees, and average lows are around 15 degrees.

We will be way above average as we head into this week, the 22News Storm Team is tracking temperatures in the 40s and even some in the 50s!
