Nor'easter Brings It All To Region

In Florida and Savoy, the heavy wet snow accumulated to about a foot. In Pownal, Vt., snow accumulated to about six inches at higher elevations during Sunday afternoon, then as temperatures rose, turned to slush. Winds howled across the region overnight, bringing down trees, causing damage to some homes, and sending loose items such as trash cans across yards and parking lots.

And as of 8 a.m. this morning, reports of downed trees were being phoned in to North Adams police from South Street, Glen Avenue., and parts of Clarksburg.

City police dispatcher David Burdick said that about 14 inches of heavy wet snow fell in Florida yesterday.

"The snow packed down some overnight but we've still got plenty," the mountain town resident said.

Burdick said that seven or eight calls reporting downed trees had been received this morning since about 7 a.m..

At 7 a.m. today, Adams and Williamstown police reported little storm-related damage or disruption. Savoy residents are digging out from under about one foot of snow that fell there yesterday. In Stamford, Vt., about six inches of snow accumulated yesterday and overnight, high winds toppled trees in areas along East Road and other sections of town. Portions of Shaftsbury, Vt. were left without electrical power due to downed wires and trees that fell onto wires.

A National Weather Service wind advisory for the Berkshire region and Bennington and Windham counties in Vermont is set to expire at 9 a.m. today. A NWS flood watch for the same areas will remain in effect throughout the afternoon.

Weather forecasters are calling for gradual weather condition improvements, with scattered rain and snow showers predicted for the overnight hours and into tomorrow. Unsettled weather is expected to continue through Thursday, with significant improvements expected during the weekend.

The next big weather news may be an expected rise in temperatures. The region may experience 50-degree and higher temperatures beginning on Friday, according to several extended weather forecasts.
