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

Precipitation Winding Down

It looks like the rain is finally over from Storm Moonracer and all we're left with are a few snow showers. An impressive band of snow is just to the west of the Berkshires; the counter-clockwise motion of the low pressure system should keep that band of moisture to our west.

As the storm center starts to lift to the north and east and break apart, we may see wraparound bands of snow come from the north and west that could be potent. We'll keep an eye on these in the overnight hours and throughout the day on Wednesday.

Here's the latest radar image (10 PM), and you can see clearly the dry slot moving into the Berkshires:


Because of the precipitation is lifting out more quickly than we expected, we'll be surprised to see too many schools in Berkshire County opt for the delay tomorrow. But local conditions have varied so much from north to south that we won't be surprised if a few districts need an extra hour or two to make the roads safe. Chances are slim, but we are telling you that there is a chance.
