Welcome: Good morning and Merry Christmas to all. Today’s post format will be a briefing-type post. This is because we have an ice storm…
Alert: Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for all of Berkshire County until 1:00 PM this afternoon.
Timing: It should be freezing rain for you right now, a transition to plain rain is expected in the afternoon, however very few may be able to hold onto the freezing rain to the evening. Then Tonight as it all ends we can expect some plain drizzle or freezing drizzle.
Snow: Not expected.
Sleet: Some isolated areas may see sleet, but it is not that likely widespread.
Freezing Rain: This is a freezing rain event for all of us. I would say additional ice amounts could be up to or just over a tenth of an inch. Total ice amounts will likely be about a few hundredths of an inch to three-tenths of an inch.
Wind: 5 to 10 mph.
Blowing Snow: Not expected.
Hazards Summary: Extremely slippery conditions are expected, I advise you to drive slowly if it seems icy, also I do not suggest going on side roads.
Anything Else: I hope you all stay safe. Please comment on what you see, thank you. Have a great day. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.
