Welcome: Good morning. Happy Groundhog Day. Today will be a briefing post, as we have a major weather event we are about to deal with. Also, which do you want, six more weeks of winter or an early spring? Please comment the answer to my question. Thank you…

Alert: A Wind Chill Warning will go into effect, for Bennington County, from 1:00 AM tomorrow going until 1:00 PM Saturday.

A separate Wind Chill Warning will go into effect, for Berkshire County, from 6:00 AM tomorrow going until 1:00 PM Saturday.

Timing: Late tonight, an arctic front will move through the region. This may bring some heavy snow showers or snow squalls. Once it moves through, the arctic air will move in. Wind chills will become dangerous early tomorrow through Saturday afternoon. Wind chills will become colder throughout the day Friday and will begin to diminish Saturday afternoon.

Wind Chills: We can expect wind chills to range between the negative 30s and negative 40s during the event. Some could reach the negative 50s Friday night or early Saturday morning.

Snow: Scattered to widespread snow showers are likely late tonight. I expected a coating to 3 inches across the area. Some snow may fall heavily at times. Roads could become snow covered quickly.

Sleet: Not expected.

Freezing Rain: Not expected.

Rain: Not expected.

Thunder: Not expected.

Peak Wind: (Tomorrow during the day and night) 20 to 30 mph, with gusts to 45 mph. Coming from the Northwest.

Blowing/Drifting Snow: Scattered to widespread blowing snow is possible tonight if you encounter snow showers or snow squalls.

Snow Day Calculator: 29% chance of a freeze day tomorrow.

Hazards Summary: Roads could be slippery and visibility could be reduced late tonight. Frostbite will be possible in as little as 10 minutes tomorrow through Saturday. Hypothermia is also possible. If you gain frostbite or especially hypothermia and it is not treated quickly, it could be fatal. Please be cautious tomorrow and Saturday.

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!
