SPRINGFIELD, Mass (WWLP) — A snowy landscape will return today for some portions of western Massachusetts.
Afternoon highs will reach the low to mid 40s, but will be a bit cooler than that outside of the valley.
There’s already some snow in the Berkshires in spots as of noon time. The western hilltowns, and the eastern hilltowns/Worcester hills will continue to make the switch over to snow, and there will be scattered snow throughout the day there through 10/11 p.m.
For the valley, we’ll continue to see mainly rain. There may be a bit of snow mixing in at times, but the valley looks to dry out earlier than the rest of the areas, mainly by the evening.
The valley is not expecting any real snowfall accumulation — at the very most some isolated coatings. The far eastern Worcester hills, the western hills, and the most of the Berkshires will see around 1 to 3 inches of snowfall. Areas far in northern Berkshire County, and very high elevation areas of western Franklin County, will see closer to 3 to 6 inches of snow, with isolated amounts up to 8 inches possible.
Aside from the snow, everyone will become quite breezy early this evening, and it’ll be windy overnight. Skies will become partly cloudy late with lows in the low to mid 20s.
