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

Light Snow Today

The Alberta Clipper is still on track to impact the Berkshires today. The ride home from school could be a little slippery. New drivers will need to take caution as they make their way home after school or after practice.

Other than a few stray snow bands in the early morning hours of Wednesday, most of the snow will wrap up by 11 PM tonight. We don't expect more than an inch or two of light, powdery snow.

The rest of the week looks like normal winter conditions. We might see a stray lake effect snow from the west, but no accumulating snow will impact the Berkshires until possibly Friday night.

We are eyeing a coastal system for Friday. The big issue with this storm is how warm it will be. Forecasting models are not in agreement at this time whether it will be all snow, a mixed bag, or mostly rain. The timing looks to be Friday night into Saturday. There is much more moisture expected with this event than today's, so a moderate to heavy snowfall is possible for our Saturday morning wake-up.

Take it slow this afternoon!
