From CBS 3 Springfield Meteorologist Mike Skurko:

“The latest storm track has snow developing in Springfield around midnight Sunday, time to get home from your Super Bowl parties. Snow will intensify overnight and through Monday morning. Snow continues through the afternoon, then ends around 7 p.m. Monday.

Snowfall totals are expected to be 8 to 12 inches throughout Western Massachusetts. The heaviest bands of snow are expected between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday. About half of those totals (4 to 6 inches) should be on the ground for the Monday morning commute.

Beyond that, it stays cold through the first week of January. Sunny skies are expected Tuesday but highs will be stuck in the teens like today. Mostly cloudy skies return Wednesday with another low pressure system providing snow to the region for Thursday.”
