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

Snowy Saturday Morning is Possible

It's a long weekend and it's late on a Friday night, but we need to alert you that there is an outside chance that the rain that had been forecasted for tomorrow (Saturday) could turn over to snow for an extended period of time and coat the Berkshires with a few inches of heavy, wet snow.

The weather experts are all over the place with this storm. Initially, everyone thought the storm would stay as all rain, as it did hit the low 40s earlier today and current temps (as of 10 PM) are still in the mid- to upper 30s.

But there are some signs that a colder nose of air will force its way into the region and turn the rain to snow in the morning hours tomorrow. We might see a few hours of snow between 9 AM and 1 PM. We're not talking about a blockbuster weather event, but it could make for very messy travel for a few hours tomorrow in the middle of the day as you're out and about doing your Saturday thing.

We need to remind you that tomorrow might just end up being a cold, rainy day. But there could be some snow and you need to be warned.

Drive safely should we see sleet and snow on Saturday.
