Were just a little over three weeks out from the Christmas holiday and Massachusetts residents are looking at a week of 40 degree plus temperatures.

After a crazy hot summer which brought a drough to most Massachusetts communities, residents are still enjoying above average December temperatures. There has been one occasion of measurable snowfall for some western Massachusetts communities, but dry so far for the most part.

While this might make some snow haters happy, skiers, winter sports enthusiasts, and snowplow drivers would like to see the white stuff fall sooner rather than later. At least the colder overnight temperatures have lent themselves to snowmaking at most Berkshire County resorts.

While the grass is still showing, over the past 15 years Massachusetts has had the most snowfall it has ever seen, dating back to when the state started keeping records of snowfall in the late 1800's, according to Spada Law Group.

In a normal winter season, Berkshire County has been known to get some pretty decent snow cover and it got me wondering, what city in Massachusetts gets the most snow?

According to HomeSnacks, an analytics site that "combines recent data from the Census, FBI, OpenStreetMaps, and dozens of other sources into bite-sized studies", the following list are the snowiest cities over 5,000 people.
