After some cold mornings lately you may be thinking more about winter weather. Some people in western Massachusetts reported seeing their first snow of the season earlier this week, but most of us have yet to have any flakes or accumulation yet.
When do we typically get our first accumulating snow?
Well for most of western Massachusetts that’s not until late November with the Berkshires falling on the earlier side and the lower Pioneer Valley falling on the later side of that window.
Most of upstate New York typically gets noticeable accumulation in early November with most of Connecticut and southeastern Massachusetts not seeing accumulating snow until December.
These are averages, however, so it’s possible we could see accumulating snow before that. We all remember the October snow storm that brought significant snow to all of western Massachusetts.
We average 2.5″ of snow in November in the lower Pioneer Valley.
