Nor’easter Conditions to Bring Berkshires Rain, Heavy Winds — and Snow?
For those in the Berkshires that are looking to wake up with a coating of snow on the ground in the morning, you may very well get your wish come Saturday morning.
A costal storm bringing strong winds and heavy precipitation is expected to make its way up the coastline late Friday through Sunday.
What does that mean for Berkshire County?
According to the National Weather Service, it means heavy winds -- gusts between 30 and 40 miles per hour -- heavy rains and, yes, possibly even some snow fall. The NWS states that snow is expected to fall in the Berkshires overnight into Saturday before it transitions into rain as the temperatures begin to rise. Especially in the county's higher elevations, it would not be surprising, from the NWS reports, to see an inch or two of snow when you wake up Saturday morning.
Expect anywhere from 1-1.5 inches of precipitation throughout the day on Saturday. High temperatures will be around 40 degrees on Saturday and get to the low to mid 40's by Sunday.
If you were going to use Saturday as a day to do some yard work, you should probably make plans to Netflix and chill instead.
