Significant Snowstorm to Usher in More Cold Temps

Print Story | Email Story

First it snowed. Then it got warm. Then it rained a lot. Then it got cold. And now it's going to snow again — likely a significant amount, especially in the northern Berkshires.


The National Weather Service on Monday morning issued a winter storm watch from 1 p.m. Tuesday to 7 a.m. Wednesday for the greater region. Snow should start Tuesday afternoon, become steady by Tuesday evening, get heavier overnight and end by daybreak Wednesday.

So how much of the white stuff will we get from this storm?

The Weather Service is calling for 6 to 12 inches of total snow accumulations. AccuWeather is predicting a couple inches Tuesday afternoon and evening with an additional 3 to 6 inches overnight in the North Adams region. Our friends at WNYT put Pittsfield north into a 5- to 9-inch zone and South County in the 2- to 5-inch zone, pretty much in agreement with the other Albany, N.Y., television stations.

But this storm — however much snow it dumps on us — is a one-two punch, ushering in frigid temperatures again. Wednesday's highs will only be in the teens, with Thursday's highs only in the single digits. Temperatures should go back to seasonably cold numbers for the weekend, however.

Biz Briefs: Big Y Closing Stores for Thanksgiving Holiday

Big Y Giving Workers Two Days Off

Big Y has issued a reminder that it will close all stores including Big Y World Class Markets, Table & Vine and Fresh Acres specialty market on Thanksgiving, Nov. 26, as well as Friday Nov. 27. Big Y Express Gas & Convenience locations will be closed on Thanksgiving Day as well.
 
Big Y officials say this two-day closing is to thank the thousands of employees for their continued hard work and tenacious efforts throughout the challenges of being an essential service throughout the pandemic and so their employees can rest and spend more time with their families. In addition, the closure will allow time for extra cleaning, restocking and preparations for the remainder of the holiday season.
 
Big Y also closed on Easter Sunday and Monday (April 12 & 13) in order to give its teams some much needed rest. In addition to these days of rest for their employees, Big Y has provided thank-you pay and now thank-you bonuses for front-line workers in recognition of their continued commitment to each other and to their customers.
 
All locations will re-open on Saturday, Nov. 28, for their usual hours. More information can be found on bigy.com.
