CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for all of western Massachusetts until 8 a.m. Wednesday.

Snow is likely to continue through the day. There may be a “lull” in the snow during the late morning-early afternoon hours, especially along and east of the Connecticut River. Steady snow will return mid-afternoon through the evening commute.

Most of our accumulating snow in the Pioneer Valley will happen early Tuesday morning and late Tuesday afternoon. The highest snowfall accumulation will be in the Berkshires and Berkshire foothills. 

Wind will also be a factor with occasional gusts over 35 mph. The heavy wet snow, combined with the wind, will result in tree damage and power outages, especially in the western hill towns.

Snow will taper off Tuesday between 8 p.m. – 11 p.m.
