Midweek Storm Forecasted To Bring More Than A Foot Of Snow To Berkshires
Here we go again. Just when you think you may get a hint of Spring it’s blasted away by a foot of snow. Berkshire County could get at least a foot of snow from a slow-moving midweek storm according to The Berkshire Eagle and the National Weather Service in Albany.
The updated winter storm watch issued Monday afternoon warns that heavy snow is possible from 7 a.m. Wednesday through 1 p.m. Thursday, with 10 to 18 inches on the ground by sunset. Besides Berkshire County, the areas affected by the coastal storm include southern Vermont and northwestern Connecticut.
Last Friday's storm didn't live up to it’s advance billing — less snow than predicted except in hill towns like Florida, Peru and Savoy — and none of the fierce winds that blasted much of the state to our east.
At AccuWeather.com, senior meteorologist Alex Sosnowski foresees "a more typical winter storm," he pointed out in an early afternoon post, with up to 12 inches on the ground in Western Massachusetts and eastern New York by midday Thursday.
