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

Snowy Saturday; Countywide Advisory

[This post has been updated.]

Just a brief check in about the weather situation for tomorrow...

The NWS has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for all of Berkshire County tomorrow. The possibility of up to 6" exists for the southernmost parts of our area. Central and Northern Berkshire could see up to 4" from tomorrow's storm.

Projected snow fall totals by Sunday morning. Dark green is between 4 and 6 inches.
As for timing, we should see falling snow when we wake up tomorrow morning. The peak intensity looks like it will be between 9 AM and 12 PM tomorrow. The snow will begin to taper later in the afternoon as the storm bombs quickly through our area. Temperatures tomorrow will max out at 32 or 33 degrees, and as a result, it's possible for a brief period of sleet in the mid afternoon period. The snow/sleet should wrap up by 8 PM.

Take it slow out there tomorrow. It's nothing we haven't seen before, so we should be able to manage it, but allow extra time for your Saturday errands.
