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

May 16 Snow

Yes, you saw it. Snow on May 16th. In the brief history of Greylock Snow Day, today's snow is the latest ever recorded in Berkshire County by this venerated weather brokerage.

It's not going to accumulate, but it continues the trend of unusual weather events we've had in the past 18 months.

We will see 70s by the end of the week, so we have that going for us.

  1. It definitely snowed in the Berkshires on May 18, 2002! I remember the event distinctly, because it was the same day as my (outdoor!) senior prom! There were no snow days that school year, either, which I ALSO remember distinctly because as seniors, we did not have to make up snow days. Alas.

  2. Excellent! We need to do a little more research to find out the latest day ever for snow in the Berkshires, but May 18 it is for now. Thanks for the memories!
