Snowfall Prediction: March Coming in Like a Lion? ROAR UPDATE

Print Story | Email Story

What a difference a day makes. Snow enthusiasts are still keeping a close eye on a storm developing for Thursday and Friday, the first two days of March that could bring up to a foot of snow to parts of the Berkshires.

The National Weather Service is now forecasting "Heavy wet snow and gusty winds expected. Total snow accumulations of 5 to 10 inches. Some gusty winds to 40 to 50 mph are possible during the afternoon into the early evening."

 So as the saying goes, March could be coming in like a lion ... and then perhaps leaving like a lamb 31 days later, maybe bringing spring for good? We can hope!

Accuweather is continuing to hedge its bets a bit, calling for a wintry mix to fall overnight Thursday, but has upgraded to the potential for far more snow than rain. It give a 38 percent chance of up to 6 inches of snow.

WTEN is calling for mostly rain until Friday, changing to wet snow in higher elevations Friday morning and then snow for everyone later in the day on Friday. Parts of the Hudson Valley could get more than a foot.

NWS says to plan on difficult travel conditions, including during the morning commute on Friday. Tree branches could fall because of the weight of the heavy wet snow and increasing winds resulting in power outages. Significant reductions in visibility are possible.
Temperatures will hover above freezing; hence, the uncertainty about rain versus snow. Either way, it will be messy, like a roaring lion.
