One More February Storm For the Road
Unless you're a real winter weather fan, this short month of February has seemed even longer thanks to a parade of storms, wind, and cold. And we've got another one to help close out the month.
There is a Winter Weather Advisory from the National Weather Service in effect through 6 A.M. Thursday. Light snow began falling in North Adams by around 3:00 today and immediately began sticking to everything as the temperatures lingered in the teens. Forecasters are expecting accumulations in the 3-6 inch range for the Northern Berkshires and Southern Vt. It'll be the lighter, fluffier type, easier to push around if that's any consolation. Not a lot, and not a long-duration storm but enough to cause some tricky travel tonight and into early tomorrow.
We should be used to the drill by now: take your time driving (and walking!) on slippery roads and pavements. Some locations may still have icy spots hiding under the new snow cover which itself could be quite slick on frozen surfaces. Be sure to leave extra room on the roads, and be alert for road crews plowing and salting as need be.
