Weather News

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Some uncertainty remains ahead of Saturday storm that will bring rain and snow to western Massachusetts.

Here’s what we’re currently thinking.

Timing:

  • Rain chances before midnight tonight, but widespread rain not until daybreak Saturday
  • Saturday morning: Rain with some snow mixing in over our western hills/Berkshires
  • Saturday afternoon-early evening: Rain changing over to snow and then ending by 7-8 p.m.

Precipitation/Snowfall:

  • Rainfall amounts from 0.25″ northwest to around 1 inch southeast
  • Snowfall amounts will depend highly on where the heavy snow band sets up as storm pulls away
  • 1-3″ for valley areas
  • 2-4″ for higher western hills
  • 4-8″ for far eastern Hampden, Hampshire & Franklin Counties closest to Worcester County
  • Snow will likely be on the wetter and heavier consistency
  • Heaviest period of snow from mid-afternoon-early evening
