Some snow, some ice ... won't that be nice?

Wintry Mix Could Slicken Roads Overnight Into Morning

Print Story | Email Story

As if it's not already pretty darn icy out there, here comes another round of winter yuck.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory from 7 p.m. Wednesday to 10 a.m. Thursday. The advisory predicts "mixed accumulation" - up to 2 inches of snow and up to one-tenth of an inch of ice.

The commute home Wednesday should be fine but as darkness falls Wednesday night watch out for conditions to deteriorate, and Thursday morning's commute in to work could be messy, too. Thanksfully, with schools on vacation, there's no need to worry about school buses.

Temperatures should remain in the mid-20s overnight but warm into the low 30s by morning, causing the wintry mix that could lead to icing.

After this event, however, temperatures should reach into the upper 30s and lower 40s for the next few days before cooling down early next week.

Oh, and spring? It's only five weeks away!

North Adams Council Passes $41M Budget for Fiscal 2021

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council approved a $41 million budget for fiscal 2021 on Tuesday along with using close to $300,000 in reserve funds despite concerns expressed by several councilors.
 
The total amount to be raised is $40,939,756, up $134,218, or 0.33 percent, from last year. Some $11,369.776 has already been spent over the past three months through continuing appropriations caused by delays in the state budget because of the novel coronavirus pandemic. 
 
"This is now coming on really six months of a budget process," said Mayor Thomas Bernard. "We typically start talking about the budget with the Finance Committee in March, and this year we had our first conversation in late April because following the shutdown at the state and local levels, there was just so much uncertainty ... it made sense to pursue several months of continuation budgets, with the goal of bringing forward this budget now for you in October."
 
The budget on its own did not generate much discussion overall but the use of $320,427 in reserve funds to offset the amount to be raised by taxes did.
