BOSTON (AP) - Winter has arrived in parts of southern New England.

The National Weather Service says parts of Massachusetts’ Berkshire County and Connecticut’s Litchfield County have been seeing snow fall since late Thursday morning.

The slushy precipitation in the western ends of the states is expected to last through the early evening, transitioning to sleet or rain in parts.

Meteorologist John Quinlan, in the weather service’s Albany office, said the mountainous region will likely see about two to four inches when it’s over.

But the white stuff isn’t likely to stick around long: the ground hasn’t frozen yet.

So far, the highest reported snowfall in western Massachusetts has been two inches in Pittsfield. In western Connecticut, the highest total has been nearly two inches in Warren.

Parts of northern New England saw their first snowfalls last week.
