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

Snow Tonight!

The GSD Staff is happy to report that we will see the first accumulating snowfall for the Berkshires this evening. Rejoice, rejoice.

Most of us should see a covering, but in the hill towns it won't surprise us one bit to see 3 or 4 inches of snow. Just to cover ourselves, we'll throw a 5% chance of a delay on the ol' True North Confidence Meter just in case everything were to break our way.

Local forecasters have pushed the snow line farther to the west. (Image courtesy of Accuweather.)
One of the preachier members of our staff wants to remind you that most drivers are idiots and forget how to drive in the snow during the off-season. Mind you, that's not how we all think, but she does have half a point. She also says to allow extra time tomorrow and not be lazy about cleaning off your windshields.

As for the storm on Monday, it's still very much up in the air whether it will be snow or rain. Either way, the timing doesn't look great as it appears to be a late morning/midday storm on Monday. The overall moisture totals will be higher than Friday's weather-maker, so we're definitely keeping an eye on it should there be enough cold air in place for all snow.
