Welcome: Good morning. We have many canons firing all at once. We have a winter event expected tomorrow, a snowstorm Sunday night, and another storm Wednesday. Much uncertainty is remaining about tomorrow’s winter event, this is because if temperatures change just a few degrees the whole storm will be impacted…

Alert: A Winter Weather Advisory is going into effect, for both Berkshire and Bennington County, starting 11:00 AM today and going until 7:00 PM tomorrow.

Also, I do know a Snow Emergency has been issued for Pittsfield.

Timing: A wintry mix will develop this afternoon that will mainly consist of rain, snow, and sleet. This evening will have a wintry mix of snow, rain, sleet, and freezing rain. As we move into the night a wintry mix of freezing rain, snow, and rain is possible. Tomorrow should be a mix of rain and snow. By tomorrow night precipitation should have ended.

Snow: Widespread snow is likely. Most of us should receive 2 to 4 inches of snow. Some in the valleys may get only a coating, while others in the mountains could reach 6 inches.

Sleet: Scattered to widespread sleet is likely. Sleet amounts are calculated into snowfall amounts.

Freezing Rain: Scattered freezing rain is likely. Most should only reach up to one tenth of an inch (0.1) of ice, but a few could reach near two tenths of an inch (0.2) of ice.

Rain: Widespread rain is likely. Rainfall should not exceed one inch.

Thunder: Not expected.

Peak Wind: 5 to 10 mph. Coming from the East.

Blowing/Drifting Snow: Not expected.

Snow Day Calculator: N/A (Two many scenarios are at play for me to give an accurate snow day prediction.) I would say delays are probably the most likely.

Hazards Summary: Roads will be slippery for the duration of the event. Though precipitation may calm down in the very early hours of Friday morning, you all must remember that it will pick back up in intensity towards the 7:00 or 8:00 AM timeframe.

Anything Else: I hope you all stay safe. Please comment and like. Thank you. Have an amazing day. I hope all goes your way. So let today be your very best day. Cheers everyone!
