We were in the deep freeze this morning. Thermometers bottomed out in the single digits below zero. Chicopee reached 8 below at Westover.
A round of light to moderate fluffy snow is with us through the day. This quick Alberta clipper low pressure system (named for its origin in Alberta Canada and its quick movement like a clipper ship) will move through western MA with the capability of producing a fresh 3 inches for Springfield by 3 pm with additional 1-2 during this evening. Temperatures will remain in the teens all day.
Cold, dry weather continues on Wednesday and Thursday under a mix of sun and clouds. The weather pattern looks unsettled for the weekend, with rain showers likely late in the day on Friday, and again on Sunday before we turn colder again early next week.
