While the weather outside is getting, shall I say, more winter-like, that feeling is about to be enhanced.

The National Weather Service has implemented a Winter Weather Advisory in effect for Berkshire County beginning Thursday night at 7 p.m. until 1 p.m. Friday. Thursday night's forecast is calling for snow transitioning into a wintery mix in the overnight. 3 to 5 inches of snow and ice are expected to land before we wake up Friday morning.

Unfortunately, that's not all.

Snow is expected to continue throughout most of the early morning hours before tapering off. Expected levels of snowfall are at 1 to 3 inches on Friday morning. That means between Thursday afternoon into Friday morning, the Berkshires could see 4 to 8 inches of that wintery mess.

While meteorologists, and recent snowfall predictions over the last couple of years, have been wrong, it would be highly recommended to get your shovels, winter hats and gloves ready to go. If there are any closings, cancellations or road updates to let you know about, check in with Live959.com for that information.

Of course, be careful on those roadways should this all come to fruition.
