REGION – A nor-easter brought a blast of snow to the region Friday, interrupting typical spring weather with an unseasonable wintery morning.

With up to eight inches of accumulation forecast in parts of the state like Fitchburg and the Berkshires, the Community Advocate coverage area did avoid the worst of this storm.

Still, the National Weather Service anywhere from 1 to 3 inches did pile up locally, with more snow clustering closer to Worcester.
