First Winter Storm Right Around The Corner

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect  from the National Weather Service for all of western Massachusetts from  Thursday night until Friday morning.  

Meteorologists say mixed  precipitation is expected for the area.  Total snow  accumulations of two to four inches and ice accumulations of around two  tenths of an inch are expected for Hampden, eastern Hampshire and  southern Worcester counties. 

The predicted totals are three to six  inches and ice accumulations of up to one tenth in Franklin and western  Hampshire counties.

The first storm of the year caught some people by surprise.  But at some hardware stores throughout the area, officials say people have been wanting lots of salt and shovels.

Residents are being asked to pick up leaves around their homes so they don't blow into the streets.  If they do then it could make pre treating by DPW crews difficult.
