Winter Storm Watch posted in anticipation of next round of snow Sunday night into Monday

Weather News

SPRINGFIELD, Mass (WWLP) – After light snow Saturday morning, a stronger storm is expected to follow Sunday night into Monday. 

“We’re excited for this storm. Hopefully, we get nailed,” Allen Cournoyer, a snow plower from Palmer, told 22News. 

That’s how many local snow plowers feel about Sunday night’s incoming storm. We had a slow start to winter this year, but the snow really picked up in February, and clearly, isn’t done with us yet as we dive into March.

And the impacts could be big. 

Now as usual, just how much snow you could see depends on where in western Massachusetts you are living, but regardless of your location, you can expect significant travel impacts Sunday night into Monday.

The exact forecast is still being fine-tuned, but almost everyone will endure snowy, slushy conditions for their Monday morning commute, which will slow traffic down. School delays and cancellations are also a possibility, and parking bans have already been put into effect through the weekend. 

“I am excited. Uh, we’re out here doing some commercial properties. A couple of residentials. Um, for the older folks. But uh, we’re getting prepared for [Sunday],” Cournoyer explained.

While the snow could delay travel, after Monday, we’re looking at a relatively quiet week across western Massachusetts.
