With just about 12 hours until the first snowflakes are expected to fall, the Nor'easter moving up the coast has meteorologists in disagreement over how much the first big storm of the season will actually bring.

As of 7 o'clock this morning, The Weather Channel is predicting lows of 19 tonight, with snow starting between 7 and 8 tonight and continuing through noon tomorrow. They expect Berkshire County to see around a foot overnight and another 1 to 3 the tomorrow.

Accuweather has a vastly different forecast for tonight into tomorrow with snow starting around 10 p.m. tonight and continuing through 9 a.m. Thursday. They're predicting 4 to 8 inches overnight and another 1 to 2 tomorrow morning.

The National Weather Service has implemented a winter storm warning and believes snows will start falling between 8 and 9 p.m. with 9 to 13 inches possible. They expect snow the storm to tapper off before noon tomorrow, with Thursday morning's snow accumulation of 3 to 7 inches.

And finally, popular local snow prediction blog Greylock Snow Day had this to say:

Despite the consensus of the models, we think the precipitation totals are slightly juiced and, because very cold air is in place, we are likely to end up in the 8-10" range with an inch or two more along the Connecticut border. We won't be surprised if some of the models ratchet snow totals back a notch or two tomorrow. Either way, snow lovers are still going to be pleased by the time the storm wraps up early Thursday afternoon.
