Giving Thanks: A Cornucopia of Snow Opportunities

Happy Thanksgiving, friendly Flake Followers!

It might be cold outside, but the snow maps are really starting to heat up. But because there's so much to do today with food prep, family outdoor time, parades, and designated napping time, we're going to cut right to the chase regarding the several snow opportunities we're eyeballing for the next few weeks.

The Appetizer: We'll see some rain later this evening (Thursday), but the rain will shift over to snow in the higher elevations. Northern Berkshire hill towns would be the most likely recipients of accumulating snow (but only an inch or two). On Friday, the wind will pick up and snow showers will abound. Given the sporadic nature of snow showers, we could see some light accumulation by Saturday morning. Road conditions, though, should be fine.

The Main Course: There's an outside chance for moderate snow Sunday night into Monday, and our crack staff at the Home Office is keeping a keen eye on this storm. A storm will slide in from the midwest and potentially intensify off the coast of Maine. Some of the models take the storm out to sea, but others keep it closer to the mainland. If you're rooting for a snow day or delay on Monday--both are certainly within the realm of possibility--start rooting hard for close-to-Maine coastal development.

Henry Margusity is bullish on moderate snow for the Berkshires by Monday.

The Dessert: Long-range modeling can be ridiculously inaccurate, but some models are showing a blockbuster event in two weeks. It probably won't happen, but it certainly is fun to think about. Snow days and delays appear to be right around the corner.

Have a great holiday, everyone, and you can expect regular updates about the Sunday night/Monday storm in this space over the weekend.
