For those who asked Santa for a white Christmas, many of their wishes were delivered Monday morning, across Franklin County.

Early snow totals reported by the National Weather Service, last updated by the service around 5 p.m., showed Rowe as the leader in the county with 6.8 inches. Across the state, only Acton at 7.2 inches and East Boxford at 7 inches reported more snow.

The snow totals in Franklin County, as reported by the National Weather Service, are as follows: Rowe at 6.8 inches, Turners Falls at 6 inches, Montague at 6 inches, Heath at 5 inches, Ashfield at 4.8 inches, Colrain at 4.5 inches, Leyden at 4.5 inches, Greenfield at 4 inches and Whately at 3 inches.

The National Weather Service updated its snow totals around 5 p.m. with its latest readings, but many of the readings reflect the most recent information provided to the service from earlier in the day. For example, Rowe’s snow total reflects an 11:26 a.m. reading, but could be updated by Tuesday morning. Similarly, Heath’s total reflects a 9:53 a.m. reading.
