Roads that were slushy and snow covered today are turning icy tonight. We saw a general 3 to 6 inches here in western MA. There was a spot 7 inch amount in the hill towns of Franklin county and the Berkshires! The lower Pioneer Valley saw 3 to 4 inches.
Here are some totals in inches:
Southwick and Westfield: 4
The sky will gradually clear tonight but it will feel like mid-winter with temperatures dropping into the lower 20s and upper teens for hill towns and northern communities.
Tomorrow the sun is back and you'll feel it's strength, but with a northerly breeze, it stays cold in the 30s yet again. There will also be a breeze that makes it feel like the low 20s. Most of the sun's energy tomorrow will be used to melt the snow instead of warming the earth.
The chilly Tuesday will set us up for a frigid start on Wednesday. Readings drop into the lower to middle teens overnight. The record low is 18 for the date both tonight and tomorrow night. Temperatures will bounce back on Wednesday with highs in the 40s followed by rain and milder temps on Thursday.
