Another Sunday, another snowstorm. Like previous storms, it’s not a so-called blockbuster, but it is a plowable amount of snow.
The snow will fall heaviest in the evening hours, before ending between midnight and 4am. It will be dry in consistency and add up relatively easy. Temperatures will be in the lower 20s overnight.
Total snowfall is expected to range from 3-6″ in southern portions of the Pioneer Valley, with up to 3″ in northern areas.
Monday features decreasing clouds, and it will be windy. Temperatures, however, will rise into the lower 30s! Melting will occur during the day, but refreeze Monday night.
Tuesday starts out cold, again. The forecast low for Springfield/Westover is 0°, and that would tie a long-standing record set back in 1950. Thankfully, the wind will be settled down by then.
Lots of sun is expected early Tuesday, but clouds will increase in the afternoon and another storm arrives by evening. It will feature a quick thump of accumulating snow with a few inches, before going over to an icy mix overnight. Temperatures will rise well into the 30s and perhaps low 40s on Wednesday morning, but given the exceptionally cold ground, ice will likely be a concern throughout the duration of the storm.
Wednesday, during the day itself, is fairly quiet with mostly cloudy skies. A cold front may linger close enough to the southeast through Thursday to keep lots of clouds in the picture.
After that, late week looks quiet but cold with a good amount of sunshine. Low temperatures in the single digits are possible again Friday and Saturday mornings.
