Welcome: Good morning. We will have a mix of precipitation for this storm. In the end, if it does turn out to be an ice storm, totals will vary from house to house. I believe there is a good chance this will be mainly sleet and/or freezing rain. If it turns out to be all rain or all snow, I would be pretty shocked…
Alert: A Winter Weather Advisory will go into effect, for both Berkshire County and Bennington County, starting 4:00 PM today and going until 1:00 PM tomorrow.
Timing: Scattered snow during the day today will transition to widespread snow in the evening. At night a wintry mix will develop and will continue into Thursday night. By Friday morning everything should have ended. During this evening into tonight some snow could fall steadily to heavily at times.
Snow: Widespread snow is likely. A coating to 3 inches of snow is likely. However, some in Bennington County could receive 6 inches.
Sleet: Widespread sleet is likely. Sleet amounts are calculated into snow amounts.
Freezing Rain: Widespread freezing rain is likely. Most should receive between 1/10 and 1/4 of an inch of ice. However some could receive less and some could receive more.

Hazards Summary: Roads will likely be dangerous at times. If ice amounts that are forecasted do occur, or if higher ice amounts occur, scattered power outages and tree damage will be possible. The more ice received, the more dangerous this event will be. Be careful.
