First Warning Weather

Snow develops this evening, becoming steadier and heavier overnight

Posted: Updated:

Clouds have moved in and light snow will begin this evening. Snow becomes steadier and heavier later tonight into early tomorrow morning before we see a wintry mix to rain later Monday morning.

A Winter Weather Advisory goes into effect for much of western Mass at 7 pm this evening and continues until 1pm Monday. A Winter Storm Warning will go into effect for northern Berkshire county as well as western Franklin and Hampshire counties from 4pm this afternoon until 1 pm on Monday.

Our next storm is tracking across the US now and will begin pushing snow into our area by this evening. Snow may begin scattered at first, then overnight will become steadier and heavier. I would expect the morning commute to be a slow one as well as the potential for school delays and cancellations. The snow should gradually go over to a wintry mix and then to rain before coming to an end by tomorrow afternoon.

Snowfall amounts will range from 3-5 inches through the southern valley. The hill towns, Franklin and Berkshire counties will see about 4-8" with some locally higher amounts possible where the precipitation remains all snow.

Drier air moves in for Tuesday with mostly sunny skies. Another cold front approaches on Wednesday with the chance for a snow shower but bitterly cold air arrives behind that front for Thursday and Friday when highs may struggle to make it into the lower 20s.
