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

Winter Weather Advisory for Friday

Old Man Winter still refuses to give up the ghost.

The old feller is relentless. While we don't think the forecast will impact the length of the school day on Friday, everyone should know that we could see some messy weather in the morning in the Berkshires tomorrow. We have been issued a Winter Weather Advisory by the National Weather Service.

Expect to see snow and sleet starting between 7 and 8 AM on Friday. The ride to school could be dicey--especially for the elementary school set--but the late (relatively) arrival of the snow will mean delays are highly unlikely. The ground could get coated quickly with the cold temperature in place. We might see an inch of snow and sleet north of Pittsfield and lesser amounts south of Pittsfield. All precipitation will change to rain after lunch.

After that little burst, you can expect to see showers and freezing rain from Saturday through Monday. The freezing rain on Monday morning is something worth keeping an eye on. This weekend will not help anyone who suffers from seasonal affective disorder. It looks like a great weekend to binge watch that show you've been meaning to get to.

We'll have more over the weekend. The worst driving tomorrow will between the hours of 8:30 and 11:00.
