Rain, Snow Showers, Cold Temps Accompany the End of 2020
With no sign of the foot-plus of snow that fell on the Berkshires just a short time ago, the National Weather Service is calling for very cold temperatures and freezing rain and icy conditions this week as we say good riddance to 2020 and welcome in 2021.
With some rain showers today, expect temps to drop Tuesday and Wednesday with a high only in the mid 20s tomorrow and a low dropping down into the teen’s tomorrow night. Wednesday will bring some sun and warming to the mid 30s.
Rain and snow showers are likely to wrap up the last day of the year with temperatures reaching the mid-40s. New Year’s Day may deliver some snow early before a possible change over to rain with a high in the low 40s.
