CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – It was a bit of a snowy start to the day throughout western Massachusetts Tuesday morning, but not the kind of accumulation expected for this time of year.

The morning’s weather conditions led to slightly slick roads but overall didn’t disrupt travel too much. Typically this time of year brings a higher amount of snowfall but snow has been in a big deficit for the entire 2022-2023 winter season.

Erin Walch of Chicopee is hoping that trend changes, “Maybe just a little bit more snow, I’m a teacher so I could go for at least one snow day, and I have young kids so to go sledding one day would be fun.”

We’re 27 days away from the first day of Spring, so there’s still time for winter weather to make its way here to western Massachusetts.

Another round of rain and snow showers will come for the evening Tuesday. This will mainly be rain in the valley and snow in the hills.
