Residents of western Massachusetts spent Sunday digging out from the first significant snow of the season. Many towns across the Springfield area reported 5 to 8 inches of snow when the storm wrapped up early Sunday morning.
The steadiest snow began falling after 7 p.m. Saturday, with snowfall rates of an inch or more per hour occurring at the height of the storm overnight. CBS3 Springfield forecasts called for 6 to 8 inches in the immediate downtown Springfield area, with double-digit totals likely in the hilltowns.
While a few towns in Franklin and Berkshire County reported slightly more than 10 inches of snow with this storm, final accumulations stayed on the lower side of the expected ranges for most towns in western Massachusetts.
Below is a complete list of snowfall reports from the National Weather Service offices in Taunton, MA, and Albany, NY.
Another round of snow is expected to return to the region on Tuesday. The complete seven-day forecast can be found on the Weather tab.
