Snow Showers End Late, More Arctic Air on the Way
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Energy in advance of an Arctic cold front will continue to swing through western Mass this evening, bringing snow showers and even a few snow bursts (snow squalls). Snow will continue throughout the evening with a minor accumulation in the valley, possible. (coating to 2″) Across the hills and Berkshires, a couple of inches of accumulation will add up. Any brief snow squall will reduce visibilities and drop a quick inch of snow in a short period of time so be on the look out this evening as you are out and about. The snowfall will come to an end late tonight as the cold front pushes through the region and some gradual clearing will take place. It will remain breezy and a very cold night is in store with lows in the single digits.
Arctic air will slide back in behind this system, dropping temperatures back into the teens for Sunday with a mixture of sun and clouds. Wind chills will be back down below zero!! There is a Wind Chill Advisory in effect for Berkshire county from 1 AM until Noon on Sunday and for Franklin, Western Hampshire and Western Hampden counties from 2 AM until 11 AM Sunday morning.
Another weak disturbance, this time a Clipper system, will bring another round of snow showers to western Mass Sunday night into Monday. This system could bring with it another minor accumulation on Monday that may cause a few slippery spots for your morning commute. We’ll see another brief warm-up on Monday with temperatures getting back to near 30 before more Arctic air builds in for the middle of next week.
Have a great evening!
