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

Rainy Day Saturday (1/11)

It looks like we have a long day of rain and some wind ahead of us for Saturday. Not a lot of fun. We hope Berkshire county skiers can get their race in.

And we apologize for not giving anyone a heads up about the light snow this morning (Friday), but we knew it wasn't really going to amount to anything (even though Central Berkshire went with the two-hour delay).

There is a Freezing Rain Advisory in effect for tonight. Any freezing rain will develop around midnight but should be gone by the morning hours. Expect the showers to start overnight, and then steadier and heavier rain will fall in the afternoon and early evening on Saturday. We think that the rain will be finished by 11 PM on Saturday. Usually with a storm like this one, we see a sharp turn of the temperatures colder after the storm comes through, but that's not going to happen this time. Temps will be in the 30s Sunday, and it will be windy.

As for the rest of the week, we could see some snow Monday night that will change over to rain on Tuesday. The temperature will continue to drop as we move toward the weekend. We don't see any strong storms in the near future but are holding out hope for something significant the week of the 20th.

We'll have more about the Monday/Tuesday disturbance on Sunday.
