The good news for those hoping for a delay or snow day tomorrow is that the storm has been much slower in getting to the Berkshires, which means its effects--snow, sleet, freezing rain and wind--could easily work their way into tomorrow morning's commute.
The bad news is the uncertainty of the precipitation type. We're just going to have to wait it out until tomorrow morning to know how bad the ice and sleet and snow are.
One school district will not need to wait it out tomorrow and that's Southern Berkshire. They called in their two-hour delay earlier this afternoon. This is a very aggressive play by the South Berkshire Superintendent, and we fully endorse his style at GSD. Why get up at 4 AM when you don't have to (as most Supers do on questionable weather days)?
|Heavy precipitation to our south will strongly impact the Berkshires around 8 PM.|
We still think 2-4 inches is what we'll see in the Berkshires with lower totals in the valleys and higher totals in the hill towns, especially on the east side of the County.
We also think a few more schools will join Southern Berkshire tomorrow with the delayed start to school, but it will likely not be a clean sweep for all Berkshire students.
We'll be running our delay and cancellation list starting around 5:30 tomorrow morning. Enjoy the evening, and keep your fingers crossed that the temperature stays at or below freezing.
