SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – While this was a major snow event for Franklin and Berkshire Counties in the Pioneer Valley it’s been largely rain. But most of the people 22News spoke to were happy not to need their shovels.
The snow was wet and heavy out west Chesterfield reporting about nine inches Goshen about seven. But further east in the valley, today’s weather was all about the rain, slush and general wintery mix. Many people out and about doing their shopping despite the sloppy weather and thankful the area is not seeing a significant snowfall.
“I’m not disappointed at all. I could care less if we have any snow for the rest of the year. I’m a golfer and a warm weather person. I know a lot of the kids would like snow for Christmas and that’s OK as long as it goes away the day after,” a fan of warmer weather told 22News.
Most of the snow the area saw today melted when it hit the ground. Many people happy they don’t have to scrape off their cars and dig out their driveways.
But there is a chance we might see a white Christmas after all. Right now our 22News storm team meteorologists are saying we could have a bit of snow next Thursday night.
