A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky, unbidden, and seems like a thing of wonder. -- Susan Orlean

Thursday Forecast for Esme

It looks like Berkshire Hills and Pittsfield got the short end of the stick this morning. That's unfortunate for those poor souls stuck in classrooms at 7:45 this morning. The rest of the County went with the ever-popular two-hour delay.

As for the remainder of the day, temps will rise which means rain with snow mixing in. The bulk of the moisture is just to our south and east, but it will start to nose its way back toward us as the storm lifts past New Jersey and Long Island. We will see a transition back to snow later this evening. Hilltowns will see it change back first and the valleys not until well after nightfall. Tomorrow's commute could be messy again, which will be reflected in the latest update of the True North Confidence Meter. We really don't think we'll get the double delay, but there's an outside chance.

Roads should be fine by 9 AM today, but motorists will need to be careful around 7 PM this evening.

We'll update later to give more info about tomorrow's commute.
