April snow showers shouldn't come as a surprise to us at this point, but they still drive us nuts every year. The silver lining to yesterday's afternoon thunder snow showers is the dramatic increase in temperatures by mid-week.

Later afternoon yesterday left a dusting of heavy wet snow all over Berkshire County with some higher elevations seeing an accumulation of three to four inches. Despite chilly temperatures and gusty winds plaguing us today, snow in most places was gone by midday.
