The Watch was finally upgraded to the Warning earlier this afternoon. We're now on track for 10-14 inches of snow for all of the Berkshires.
The two low pressure systems from the west will phase together, which will intensify the storm. The heaviest snow should fall between 6 and 9 PM Sunday, although we could see rates of over 1 inch per as early as 3 PM in the afternoon.
There might be a break in the intensity of the storm around midnight, and then once the low hits the coast, bombogenesis will occur, which will result in re-intensified snow fall rates around 2-3 AM. This part of the storm is what will lead to widespread snow days on Monday.
|Not a minor storm.|
Maybe school districts should start to reconsider the need for February vacation!
You know we'll have more to say tomorrow (if the GSD Staff makes it back from eastern Mass).
