The 22News Storm Team has issued a Weather Alert through midday Friday for the first accumulating snow of the season.
A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for ALL of western Massachusetts through 1PM for accumulating snow that may be heavy.
The “heaviest/steadiest” snow has moved through the area dropping 1.3″ of accumulation at Westover A.R.B. in Chicopee with up to 3 inches in western Franklin County.
The snow will gradually wrap up into early afternoon from northwest to southeast.
With these early season storms you’ll end up with noticeably more snow on colder surfaces like grass compared to asphalt. Isolated power outages are possible in areas that get the most snowfall, but this won’t be a repeat of the October 2011 snow storm.
