Mixed Bag of Precipitation Brings a Winter Weather Advisory
We're seeing typical weather in Berkshire County. As the phrase goes in the Berkshires, if you don't like the weather, wait 10 minutes. That is the case for today and tomorrow. Whereas today we're seeing mild temperatures, melting snow and some flooding (flood watch remains in effect through 1 pm Saturday); tomorrow will be the complete opposite as a winter weather advisory will be in effect from 3 am - 7 pm Saturday. We'll see temperatures near 32 degrees during the day and near 2 degrees above at night. It's a roller coaster ride of weather but many of us are used to it by now.
Also, if and when traveling tomorrow, give yourself some extra time especially during the advisory hours as the forecast is calling for a mixed bag of precipitation including snow, sleet and/or freezing rain. Here are all of the advisory details from our friends at AccuWeather:
* WHAT...Mixed precipitation expected. The ice will result in
difficult travel conditions. Total snow accumulations of up to
one inch and ice accumulations of up to one tenth of an inch
* WHERE...Central and southeastern Catskills, mid Hudson Valley,
the Berkshires and northwestern Connecticut.
* WHEN...From 3 AM to 7 PM Saturday.
