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

The Latest on Storm Charley

Everything is still on track for tonight's storm. We've been updating the cancellations as they have come in:

CLARKSBURG
NORTH ADAMS PUBLIC SCHOOLS
BART
SOUTHERN BERKSHIRE REGIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT
HANCOCK
PITTSFIELD PUBLIC SCHOOLS
LENOX PUBLIC SCHOOLS
MOUNT ANTHONY
MOUNT GREYLOCK
LANESBOROUGH
WILLIAMSTOWN PUBLIC SCHOOLS
LEE PUBLIC SCHOOLS
BERKSHIRE HILLS
McCANN
CENTRAL BERKSHIRE
BCC
ADAMS-CHESHIRE
So VT COLLEGE
MCLA

As for storm details, here's what you want to know:

*Sleet may push farther north than had been anticipated. We could sleet in the late morning in South County.
*The storm start should be around 2 AM.
*NOAA is expecting the Berkshires to see up to 6" on the roads by the morning commute.
*The storm will be a fast mover; the heaviest snow bands will be through our area by 2 PM, and then it we'll experience light snow and snow showers the rest of the way until 6 PM or so.
*The entire county should see at least 7" of snow, with more in higher elevations and in North County.

Here's a shot of the radar around 9:30 PM:


The snow is getting closer, and the green blob south of the nation's capital is starting to grow in size. That piece of precipitation will continue to expand and push up the coast, overspreading lots o' moisture over the nice cold air already in place. And that's why we're supposed to see a foot of snow in some spots.

Enjoy the day off tomorrow, everybody!
