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

Winter Weather Advisory Extended

Oh so close...so tantalizingly close. The coveted white stuff just refuses to fall for an extended period of time over Berkshire County.

That may change in a significant way later today, but the wraparound snows are staying predominantly to our east and north.

Several schools very close to and bordering Berkshire County have called in the full snow day. Berlin, Hoosick Falls and New Lebanon in New York have all closed for the day.

5:40 AM; this snow is essentially holding in place and should spread eastward later this morning.
As for the rest of the day, we have a steady drizzle going on in most parts of Berkshire County. In some of the higher elevations this drizzle is starting to freeze. By noon or so we're supposed to see more steady snow--finally--and we're looking at 2-4 inches this afternoon into tonight as the temperature starts to drop below freezing. Evening activities could be cancelled, but if you are the person responsible for making the decision to cancel an event, GSD certainly suggests holding off until later today (3 PM) to make that call as the snow may not be that heavy. We do have a WWA in effect until 7 AM Thursday.

At the moment, no schools in Berkshire County have called in any delays. That could change and we'll let you know right here.
