The weekend is here!  Spring is just over two weeks away.  More and more birds can be heard singing in the Berkshires each morning and daylight is visibly sticking around longer each afternoon.  Spring officially arrives on Sunday, March 20th, and daylight will be around longer when we turn our clocks ahead for daylight saving time next Sunday.

After a bit of a chill tonight and tomorrow we will have a taste of the temperatures to come when the mercury reaches over the 60-degree mark on Sunday in the Berkshires.  There will be quite a bit of cloud cover and some showers but with temps over 60, it’s hard to complain.
