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

Monday Weather Turns Nasty; Friday Storm?

Like a Jon Lester curveball, the weather is just plain nasty this afternoon. Sideways rain, plummeting temps, and a few heavy snow showers will dominate the Berkshire weather scene. So much for our prediction yesterday that teams will be able to get in their training this week!

Today doesn't look like much fun out there, and tomorrow's no bag of donuts either. Windy, cold, raw--unseasonably cold for this time of the year. Wednesday will be the chillier of the next two days but considerably drier and less windy.

Again, we do expect a moderation in the temps by Thursday. At least we have that to look forward to.

We do have our eye on a possible Friday storm. Most models take it out to sea well to our south, but the lesser-discussed Canadian model has the low turning up the coast and bringing a snowstorm to our region.

Is April the month in which the Canadian model shines? Is the Canadian model tired of playing third fiddle to the European and US models? Will Friday be the Canadian model's one shining moment?

In college hoops terms, the Canadian model's chances of being right would be like a #15 seed beating a #2 seed. We're not optimistic, but who doesn't love an upset?
