Storm to bring rain to New Year’s celebrations

In a year where we saw nearly 25 percent more rainfall than normal, it figures that much of the region will see rain as the calendar transitions from 2018 to 2019.

Low pressure will move into New England Monday afternoon with a warm front moving into southern New England on New Year’s Eve.

The storm will bring widespread rain, starting as a wintry mix in the slopes of the Berkshires and northern Worcester Hills.

A winter weather advisory was posted for western Hampshire, western Franklin, northern Worcester, and northwest Middlesex Counties for the potential for wintry weather midday Monday.
