Three things to know about today's minor weather event:
1. It's the kind of cold that hurts this morning. Minus 1.9 Fahrenheit at the Home Office, with other reports of -6 in the Berkshires. With the clouds moving in, temps will warm up to the high teens by later this afternoon. Don't even think about going to school without a hat and gloves today.
2. You can practically set your watch to the arrival of the snow. We say 8:55 AM for Northern Berkshire County; SoCo will see the snow about twenty minutes earlier.
3. Snows will taper significantly around 4 PM.
That's it...we'll see if any schools opt for the early release today, as they are already doing in the eastern part of the state.
[UPDATE: Mohawk Trail is closed for the day...what?! Also, some schools to the south and west of Berkshire County have also called school off.]
