How did Sunday-Monday storm become so powerful?

Weather News

(WWLP) – It wasn’t an October snow storm, but this storm did a lot of damage.

So what made our Sunday into Monday morning’s storm so powerful? Basically, it was two systems rolled into one.

East Longmeadow, Wilbraham among towns hardest hit by storm

We had a cold front approaching from the west. A cold front is the leading edge of cold air that brought some light rain from the west.

And we also had a storm that would develop into Tropical Storm Phillippe.

The cold front pulled a lot of the moisture away from Phillippe and brought a lot of wind and several inches of rain to western Massachusetts.
