RECENT SNOWFALL TOTALS

Snowpack conditions in Massachusetts vary depending on the mountain ranges that provide snow for the state. The western part of the state, including the Berkshire Mountains, typically receives the most snowfall due to its higher elevation. The Wachusett Mountains in central Massachusetts also accumulate significant amounts of snow.

Snow in Massachusetts is crucial for replenishing water supplies during the spring thaw. The runoff from snowmelt feeds various rivers and watersheds, such as the Connecticut, Merrimack, and Housatonic rivers. These rivers play a crucial role in providing drinking water, irrigation, and hydroelectric power to the state.

Massachusetts experiences a cold and snowy winter climate, with temperatures averaging in the 20s°F (-6 to -7°C) in January. The state receives an average of 40-50 inches (102-127 cm) of snow per year, though amounts can vary significantly from year to year.

Interesting facts about snow science in Massachusetts include the presence of multiple ski resorts, such as Jiminy Peak and Berkshire East, which rely on snowmaking technology. Historical records also indicate that the Great Blizzard of 1888 brought exceptionally heavy snowfall to Massachusetts, with drifts reaching up to 20 feet (6 meters) in some areas.
