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

Snow On The Way for Saturday Night

The NWS has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for all of the Berkshires due to an approaching snow and mixed precipitation storm. The Advisory period begins at 5 PM Saturday and ends at 10 AM Sunday, so it is a fast-moving storm.

Expect snow to begin between 4 PM and 5 PM. You might see a stray snow shower before that time, but the bulk of the accumulating snow will really start to fall around 6 PM. We expect most of the county to get 4" or 5", with the higher elevations getting closer to 8". Snow totals could be lower in South County if sleet mixes in, as it is expected to.

Had this storm been on a school night, we would be looking at widespread snow days for the County.

This storm should be wrapping up with snow showers and some drizzle (liquid) in the middle of the day on Sunday.

After this storm comes through, the cold air returns, and it looks like a relatively quiet week coming up on the snow/storm front.
