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.

North Adams Shop Connects Art, Greenery and Curiosities

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff

Yawn supplements her inventory with plants from local growers. 
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Emilee Yawn has found a way to connect her love of greenery, art and community with the recently opened Plant Connector at 46-48 Eagle St.
 
The shop in the point of the flat-iron building offers a variety of houseplants, a lending library of gardening and design, exhibition space, and craft and artisan items, some tucked away in cabinet drawers that patrons are encouraged to open.
 
"The idea is that it is like a plant store but it's also a lot of locally made stuff and you can go through the drawers like a curiosity shop," Yawn said. 
 
The "oddities" such as candles, essential oils, cards, totes, baskets and macrame plant hangars made by her mother. Local artists are represented but also items made by crafters Yawn has known in her travels.
