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

Snow Returns on Tuesday

Happy President's Day, snowhounds! Keep those boots and shovels handy as we have another round of moderate snow headed our way for Tuesday.

No need to sound the alarms for this one, but we could see up to 6" in the Berkshires by the time this two-part storm system passes through. We have an Alberta Clipper headed our way, which will produce snow as early as 6 AM Tuesday. As the AC passes through, another smaller low pressure system will form along the coast (near Long Island), and that low pressure will cause some lifting of moisture into our region during the day on Tuesday.

If school were in session, we would not have any delays, cancellations, or releases from this system. But travel on Tuesday will be messy, so take your time out there. We should see 1-2" from part A during the morning commute hours and 2-4" from part B from midday to the late afternoon. The consensus in the GSD office is for about 4" total for most of the Berkshires. We also think we could see Winter Weather Advisories posted this afternoon for tomorrow's snow event. We don't think school athletic contests will be affected Tuesday night, but there's a 25% chance they could be postponed.

From our friends at Accuweather.
The rest of the week will feature a warming trend. We could be in the low to mid 40s for five straight days starting on Wednesday. But the week after features a return to temps below freezing for highs.
