More snow and cold may be in the offing...

Posted: Updated:

Friday morning's storm quickly dumped a solid 4-6" of snow up and down the valley with 6-10" in far eastern Hampden County. All that in about 8 hours. Very impressive. Heavy snow bands were adding about 2 inches per hour on occasion in the Berkshires and eastern Hampden county.

Check out some of the snow totals:

Hampden 10" Brimfield 8" East Longmeadow 7" Holyoke 4" Greenfield 5" West Springfield 5" Westfield 4" and Heath 3" just to name a few.

With fresh snow cover, we'll manufacture our own cold air for Saturday morning. Everyone getting mid teens in the hour after sunrise. The weekend features seasonable temperatures with a fair amount of sunshine. Highs top off in the middle 30s Saturday and then lower 40s on Super Bowl Sunday. 

Next week is more winter-like as the jet stream takes a sharp plunge over the mid-west where arctic air will invade. We get a piece of this on Monday. At the same time, a strong Nor'easter will be taking shape. The track of this storm and how it interacts with a storm coming at us from the mid-west will determine how much snow we receive. It may snow lightly for a couple of days, or it may be more significant. We'll be watching this scenario closely.
