Snowstorm Prompts Snow Emergencies, Cancellations
This delightful paragraph arrived Saturday morning from the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency:
"The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is advising the public that weather forecasters are expecting a winter storm to impact travel across the Commonwealth beginning Saturday evening and continuing throughout Sunday. Heavy wet snow is expected to begin falling on Saturday evening, transition to freezing rain and sleet in some areas on Sunday, and be followed by a flash freeze on Sunday afternoon and evening. The public is advised to minimize travel if possible, make smart decisions if driving, and be mindful of potentially hazardous travel conditions due to the mixture in various geographic locations of rain, ice, snow and sleet."
- Boys & Girls Club of the Berkshires will be closed, all activities canceled, for Sunday, Jan. 20.
- Greylock Together meeting for Sunday is canceled.
- Blackinton Union Church's 10 a.m. service Sunday is canceled.
- Williams College Museum of Art is closed on Sunday.
- Berkshire Museum closed Sunday.
- Norman Rockwell Museum closed Sunday.
Weekend Storm Timing: Here's a rough idea of what to expect. Snow arrives Sat night, transitions to a wintry mix Sun morning, and probably to all rain near Cape/Islands. Mix/rain should make it a little farther north after 7 AM Sun but uncertainty is very high! Stay tuned. pic.twitter.com/KlRdwcjOtE— NWS Boston (@NWSBoston) January 17, 2019
