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

Winter Weather Advisory for Monday Night/Tuesday Morning

We have a big storm heading our way for Monday night and Tuesday. Once again, though, it will not fully cooperate and it will eventually turn to rain.

It's hard to fathom that we can go from a high of 2 today (Sunday) to a high in the upper 30s two days later (Tuesday), but that's the hand we will see dealt.

We will have a period of snow tomorrow evening that will make for messy travel in the Berkshires. Expect a few inches of snow--more in North County than South County this time--and then the changeover to sleet and freezing rain will take place around midnight. The precipitation will change to all rain by the morning commute.

Rain will come down heavy at times on Tuesday, making it a good day for indoor vacation activities. Unfortunately, the rain Tuesday will wipe out the few inches of snow cover we have right now. We might see a few snow showers as the storm exits Tuesday night, but there won't be much accumulation, if any.

A warm-up is around the corner--40s for highs starting during the weekend--so we're not sure when we'll see our next chance for a plowable snow event.
