Spring weekend weather seems more and more important than a winter weekend’s forecast. During the winter months, there aren't many outdoor activities going on outside. Maybe a little bit of skiing, snowmobiling, or maybe a trip to a couple of towns over to visit grandma. We know it will be cold and if the weather is crappy outside, we just stay inside and watch Netflix.

In the spring we need a balance of rain to turn the grass green and kickstart the early stages of growth for everything nature has to offer. On the other hand, we need the ability to spend time outside to get a jumpstart on those spring projects around the house and garden.

Fall-Like Weather in the Berkshires Saturday...Winter-Like on Sunday

According to the latest Berkshire forecast from the National Weather Service, this weekend will be one of those weekends we can chock up to helping the grass grow.  The Berkshires will have shower activity overnight Friday and in the afternoon on Saturday. The temps will also feel more like fall than spring-like with the mercury not getting much higher than the mid-40s on Saturday.
