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

Snow to Impact Monday Morning Travel

Snow lovers will not have to wait long for our next round of white stuff. Even though the heaviest of it will fall to our north, the Berkshires could see as much as 6" of snow, especially if you live in the northern part of the county. Accuweather is calling for 4-8" for Billsville, but Accuweather is always overly aggressive with its forecast snow totals.

This coastal storm will be a fast mover, and it will start out as rain around midday on Sunday. The rain will change over to snow around nightfall. How much snow we get all depends on the amount of precipitation associated with the bands of snow that could form. Some models are indicating that there's quite a bit of moisture associated with this coastal storm, but the models have consistently overshot the mark this winter.

Thanks, Accuweather.
Look for a winter weather advisory for the Berkshires to be announced sometime later today (Saturday). Our official GSD prediction is for 3-4" of fairly heavy, wet snow. If we were not on vacation, we would be looking at widespread delay scenarios for the county on Monday.
