PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Up to six inches of snow is expected overnight, with 8 inches possible in the higher elevations.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for the county because the forecast could make driving difficult. The advisory is in effect from 5 p.m. until noon on Friday.

Accuweather senior meteorologist Alex Sonsnowski says "the region has one sloppy mess on the way."

Two storm systems will be competing for space over the Northeast as one loops back after heading out to sea Wednesday and another that dropped a foot of snow over the Midwest moves into southern New England and New York.

Mixed precipitation is expected to develop Thursday afternoon and change to snow at night. The snow could fall as quickly an one inch per hour overnight.

The moderate to heavy snow could make traveling hazardous Friday morning. Additionally, winds are expected between 10 and 15 miles per hour with gusts up to 35 miles per hour. Temperatures are expected to be in the upper 20s to lower 40s

Most of the precipitation, sloppiness and winds are expected to fall to the south and east, hitting Boston and New York and New Jersey. Flood warnings are in effect for eastern Mass and the South Shore and National Grid is urging customers to heed evacuation notices.

The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency is reporting winds up to 65 mph on Cape Cod and islands, and flooding and downed wires on the Cape, southeastern Mass and around Boston.

Some meteorologists noted that the systems developing earlier this week could be on par with the so-called Ash Wednesday storm of 1962, which caused some $200 million in damage. On Wednesday, government offices shut down in Washington and more than 200,000 customers were without power as the storm swept into the mid-Atlantic before heading north to New England.

It looks like a run-of-the-mill snowstorm for the Berkshires, but if there are cancellations, we'll post them and, of course, any school closings or delays. But whatever you do, don't forget the bread and milk!
