The Berkshires could be in for a messy commute on Tuesday as a winter storm moves into the region from the Midwest.
The National Weather Service is forecasting light accumulations of snow or sleet early on Tuesday morning and as temperatures, it could lead to icy and hazardous conditions.
"Unseasonably and potentially record cold temperatures are expected Tuesday through Thursday," according to the NWS. "High temperatures are expected to remain near or below freezing with overnight lows in the single digits or teens."
The region could get up to 3 inches of snow, and up to 6 inches in the higher elevations, if the storm continues on its Monday track. Accuweather says more than 400 flights had already been canceled by Monday morning in the Chicago area and heavy snow was making its way across western New York State.
Accuweather has the Berkshires down for a mixture of rain and snow, with ice being thrown into the recipe for the far northwest corner and in Southern Vermont. However, the greater amount of frozen precipitation will come later on Tuesday, with 3 to 6 inches possible over North County and less to the south.
Coming in behind the storm is much colder air from our lovely neighbors in the north and Tuesday and Wednesday could be in the single digits! And winter is still nearly six weeks away!
While we won't see accumulating snow in Albany, roads may still become slick later tonight and impact the Tuesday morning commute. Plan accordingly #518wxpic.twitter.com/MnHixzLd4P
Accumulations most likely north and west of Albany for tonight/tomorrow morning - this is where winter weather advisories and winter storm warnings are up. Details on @CBS6Albany! pic.twitter.com/klNhTExpnl

Retired North Adams Librarian Pens Book About Renovation
By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The story of the modernization and expansion of the historic North Adams Public Library has been written by the library director who the led the project.
"Preserving a Legacy: Building for the Future" was recently self-published by Marcia Gross, who was head of the library for the first decade of the century.
"She was so heavily involved in the planning for the library and donated a substantial part of her professional life to the renovation and expansion," Richard Markham, former library trustee, said. "I think she wanted to tell that story."
Markham helped Gross with the book and is doing the marketing and press for her.
