Welcome: Good morning. The two key factors for this storm are the temperature and the amount of moisture. The colder it is, the more snow we will receive. The more moisture also means more snow. If it snows long enough, it will cool the temperatures, and in turn give us more snow…
Alert: A Winter Storm Warning will go into effect, for both Berkshire County and Bennington County, starting 7:00 PM tonight and going until 7:00 PM tomorrow night.
A Snow Emergency is in effect for Pittsfield until 7:00 AM Wednesday.
Timing: Widespread snow begins this evening and continues into tomorrow evening. Snowfall rates could reach 1 inch per hour at times tonight and tomorrow morning. By tomorrow afternoon I expect rates to reach up to 1/2 an inch per hour.
Snow: Widespread snow is likely. I expect 3 to 6 inches for Bennington County, and 5 to 8 inches for Berkshire County. However, higher elevations in both Berkshire County and Bennington County, will likely receive 7 to 10 inches of snow.
Sleet: Not expected.
Freezing Rain: Not expected.
Rain: Not expected.
Thunder: Not expected.
Peak Wind: (Tonight and tomorrow) 10 to 20 mph, with gusts to 30 mph. Coming from the Southeast.

Hazards Summary: Driving conditions will be difficult. Roads will be dangerous. Sidewalks and driveways will be extra slippery due to the recent freezing rain and sleet. Use extra caution if out tomorrow morning.
