SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- A mainly dry but windy day is on tap as we close out the weekend with a Wind Advisory in effect for all of western Mass. Our next storm system could bring snow to a wintry mix Monday night into Tuesday.
It will be a windy day today as low pressure continues to strengthen to our north. Clouds will mix with sun throughout the day. Snow showers are possible in the Berkshires, but the valley looks mainly dry with a few flurries possible. Northwest wind may gust over 45 mph at times, especially in the hills. A Wind Advisory is in effect for all of western Mass until 7pm this evening. Gusty winds could bring down tree limbs and some isolated power outages are possible.
The next storm to affect western Mass arrives Monday evening. This storm looks more wintry than wet, with a good chance for snow Monday evening, before changing to a mix by Tuesday morning. It's possible snow falls to end the storm. Hazardous travel conditions are looking likely for Monday evening into Tuesday Morning. Early snowfall estimates are 1-3" in the lower valley with 3-5" possible for Franklin & Berkshire counties as well as along the east slopes of the Berkshires. After that it turns dry and cold for the end of the workweek.
