Very Cold this Weekend…Springlike Temps Next Week
March has arrived and with the official start of spring just 15 days from today on March 20th. However, we will have to wait until next week before it really starts to feel like spring is on the way. It certainly won’t this weekend as it will feel more like January with a high in the mid-twenties and a wind chill around zero.
Next week we will feel a temperature increase from the upper 30s to the 40s and then by mid-week the Berkshires is expected to hit the mid-fifties. In the meantime dress warm this weekend and protect bare skin as frostbite can still set in no matter what month it is if its cold enough.
