First The Snow--Frigid The Rest Of The Year

posted by John Baibak - 

The totals are in from the Christmas  snowstorm of 2017.  

The National Weather Service says the snowiest spots  in Hampden, Hampshire, Franklin and Berkshire counties all got five to  seven inches on Monday morning.  

Springfield  received four-and-a-half inches.  

One significant auto accident was  reported yesterday when a driver crashed into a home in Monson after  reportedly losing control of her vehicle coming down a hill. 

Following some snow, bitterly cold temperatures are up next.   

WHYN Meteorologist Janna Brown says it won't get above freezing in Springfield  for the rest of 2017, with forecasted lows this week in the single  digits.  

Accordingly, the city's department of health and human services  is activating its cold weather emergency response network.
