The first major winter storm is on its way.  Snow is expected to arrive tomorrow night before midnight and be heavy snow by Thursday morning.  Unlike most winter storms, the southern part of Berkshire County will be hit harder than north county.   Of course, Mother Nature is unpredictable but snow accumulation totals in the Berkshires range between 2 to 10 inches with the higher totals in south country.  Temps will be very cold that will produce a light powder and not the back-breaking wet snow that is dangerous to shovel and more difficult to clear.

With a Winter Storm Watch in effect beginning tomorrow afternoon, WUPE will keep you updated as WUPE’s Winter Watch will kick into gear with updated forecasts, cancelations, and road conditions throughout Thursday morning.
