Welcome: Good evening. I am giving an update on our storm. The forecasts are showing higher snow totals. Get ready everyone, because this will likely be a big one. Also remember it will be wet snow so do not hurt your back shoveling it all at once…
Alert: A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for all of Berkshire County and Bennington County. This Winter Storm Warning goes into effect 7:00 PM tonight and lasts until 10:00 AM Saturday.
Timing: By the end of this evening the snow should be moving into the area. It will snow heavily throughout the night into tomorrow morning. It is possible that snowfall rates may reach 2 inches per hour! By tomorrow late morning some of us will be a rain/snow mix while others will be all snow. Tomorrow night we all go back to snow with again high snowfall rates. It will snow early Saturday, but will likely be done by Saturday afternoon.
Snow: Widespread wet snow is likely. For Lenox and southwards I expect 6-14 inches of snow. For Pittsfield and northwards I expect 8-20 inches. Finally, I expect 20-36 inches on the highest of mountain peaks. This storm still has the potential to underachieve or overachieve.
