SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – This year, we will steer clear from a significant snowstorm on Thanksgiving Day.
Instead, we’re looking pretty wet and mild. However, we’ve had some pretty snowy Thanksgiving days before. The most recent one in memory would be 2014.
The day before Thanksgiving, we had a snowstorm that brought wet, heavy snow as thousands of locals were traveling for the holiday. The heavy snow led to significant delays on local highways.
The average first date of accumulating snow in the valley nears November 23, so it’s not all that rare for us to get snow on or around Thanksgiving.
One of the biggest snowstorms to hit on Thanksgiving Day was in 1989 when most areas got around 6 inches of snow.
