Could we see some actual snow this week?

Messy Winter Weather on the Menu This Week

Did someone order snow?

The National Weather Service originally issued a "Hazardous Weather Outlook" for the Berkshires and southern Vermont for basically the entire first half of this week, then upgraded it to a "Winter Weather Advisory" for 3 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday for the first leg of the multi-day storm.

Monday's cold temperatures will push in some snow overnight tonight, with an inch or 2 possible to the south and up to 3 inches in the northern part of the county. Then, as temperatures rise a bit Tuesday morning, there could be a mix of snow and sleet before the precipitation changes to freezing rain and then plain rain throughout the afternoon.

When the sun sets Tuesday, the rain will turn back into snow, with a new snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches overnight into Wednesday. The snow will continue Wednesday morning then begin to taper off throughout the day into snow showers in the evening.

It's hard to guess what a total accumulation might be, as the first round of snow Monday night could be washed away Tuesday afternoon. But suffice it to say, the next couple of days could be messy; the latest National Weather Service at right shows what the totals could be. 

And then comes bitter cold, with highs Friday and Saturday only predicted to be in the teens to low 20s. Friday night we could see our first below-zero temps of the season. Bundle up!

'Late Night': Funny Business

By Michael S. GoldbergeriBerkshires Film Critic
Somewhere between my wild youth and the acquiescence to middle-class mediocrity if not respectability, there was my bachelor pad era. The Cohens, a childless couple who had no designs on a single-family home until they inherited one, had relinquished their pink apartment on Pingry Place. And thus, after a bribe, unbeknownst to me, from my Mom to the super, the digs were mine. 
 
I later learned that said financial inducement was followed by regular sub-rosa gratuities in return for information on yours truly's comings and goings. In Mom's defense, I think she had a FISA warrant. And yes, this indulgent preamble has everything to do with director Nisha Ganatra's smartly funny "Late Night."
 
You see, my best friend Bob and I spent the better part of several weeks in the newly acquired apartment, aided by the creativity-stimulating sources of the day, arduously trying to figure out how best to transform the space from Cohen Pink to Goldberger, well, just what? Finishing second in the sweepstakes was an Italian restaurant motif, wherein several square tables with red checkered table cloths would be complemented by walls adorned in murals depicting the food-famous landscapes of Tuscany. The thinking was that since I had no etchings to show should a
young lady wish to visit my chambers for an après-theater glass of Chianti, my bistro would surely prove an appropriately adequate conversation piece.
