The snow showers we were forecasting have arrived, dropping a quick 1-3" across much of western Mass. We are expecting the back edge of the main line to move thru by 7-8pm. While the accumulations are minor, we are concerned about the slippery roads and reduced visibility.
Snow totals measured across western Mass:
The final push of snow comes thru around 11pm to midnight. This is associated with the cold front that keeps us chilly as we head in to Wednesday. A stiff breeze will make the wind chills feel like the low teens to single digits Wednesday afternoon.
A wind advisory will go in to effect at 1 AM Wednesday morning, lasting until 5 PM Wednesday evening. Winds could gust in excess of 45mph Wednesday.
Thursday and Friday will be cool and breezy with temperatures nearing 30 both days.
We are watching the chances for a coastal system over the weekend. While it's too early to make a call right now, we could be talking about our biggest snow of the year.
