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

Much Disagreement Still for Tuesday's Storm

It's still much too early for us to make a prediction for tomorrow. The Euro model is forecasting over 6 inches of snow for Albany. The North American models are right in the 2-3" range. Other models are even forecasting all rain.

Here's the snowfall forecast from NOAA-Albany. They are using a combination of models for their prediction:

Thanks to NWS Albany for this graphic.

You can see that the hill towns of Berkshire County could get pounded, but lower elevations will only see 2-4 inches. This storm just has so many variables that it will be very difficult for Superintendents to make the right call no matter what they decide to do.

This will be a right-down-to-the-wire type of storm. Don't expect to see too many schools in the Berkshires call in the snow day ahead of time tonight.
