I am still receiving reports of snow totals from across Western and Central Mass with last night's storm. Some areas received not as much snow as forecast; other areas, however, received more snow than what was forecast. Here in Indian Orchard, I recorded about 6 inches of snow with this storm. Here are some of the snow numbers that I have received so far: Western Mass: East Longmeadow: 8 Inches. Southwick: 6 Inches. Springfield: 6 Inches. Ludlow: 6 Inches. Ware: 5.5 Inches. North Amherst: 5.5 Inches. Holyoke: 5.3 Inches. Chicopee: 5 Inches. Northampton: 4.8 Inches. West Springfield: 4.5 Inches. Central Mass: Milford: 16 Inches. Uxbridge: 15 Inches. Grafton: 13.5 Inches. Auburn: 11 Inches. Worcester: 8 Inches. Fitchburg: 7 Inches. I would greatly appreciate any snow total reports that you want to pass on to me.
Updated Snowstorm Forecast For Tonight Into Early Monday Morning: Based on the latest high resolution weather data, I am increasing forecast snow totals across much of Western and Central Mass.
Snow will overspread Western and Central Mass between 7 and 9 pm this evening with the snow expected to continue all night long tonight.
Heavy snow with snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour are expected across Western and Central Mass from about midnight tonight to about 6 am Monday morning across Western Mass and from about midnight tonight to about 7 am Monday morning across Central Mass.
Snow will come to an end from west to east during Monday morning – first across Western Mass by 7 to 8 am with snow ending across Central Mass by 8 to 9 am Monday morning.
Snowfall totals are expected to range from 4 to 6 inches across the upper Pioneer Valley to 6 to 9 inches of snow across the rest of Western Mass to 9 to 12 inches of snow accumulation across a large part of Central Mass. The hardest hit areas are expected to be from about Hartford through Worcester to about Boston where upwards of 8 to 12 inches of snow is expected.
Overall, this is expected to be a decent snowstorm which will impact the Monday morning commute. Plan now for a lot of delays and slow going. This means leave yourself plenty of extra time to get to your destination Monday morning.
