Welcome: Good evening. This will be a briefing-type post. A lot has changed in a few hours. This storm is really ramping up to be a big one for most if not all of the county. Now lets get into it…
Alert: A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for all of Berkshire County from 4:00 AM tomorrow (Saturday) to 1:00 AM the day after tomorrow (Sunday.)
Timing: The storm track is expected to be farther south and east. This means more cold air. So now I think it really depends on where you live. It looks like some will start as snow very late tonight and not turn to a rain/snow mix. While others may start as a rain/snow mix and turn into snow tomorrow morning. All ends late tomorrow night.
Snow: Generally 5 to 10 inches of snow is expected, with a few places possibly reaching a foot. I want to note that there is still a potential the storm under performs or even over performs in snow totals.
Sleet: Not expected.
Freezing Rain: Not expected.
Peak Wind: 15 to 25 mph, with gusts up to 50 mph, coming from the West Northwest.
Blowing/Drifting Snow: Widespread blowing and drifting snow is expected.
Snow Day Calculator: Not available.
Hazards Summary: It will be very dangerous to travel. Please bring emergency supplies if you are traveling during the storm. Also snow will be heavy and wet at first so be careful with your back if you shovel. Finally snowfall rates may reach over 1 inch per hour in some spots, this heavy snow and wind may cause power outages and/or tree damage.
Anything Else: I hope you all stay safe. Please comment and like, thank you. Have an amazing night. I hope you are alright. So let tonight be your very best night. Cheers everyone!
