A monster snowstorm will bring up to 18 inches of snow across the Berkshires over the next 24 to 36 hours.

Initial forecasts of 4 to 6 inches have now been upgraded to 12 to 18 across the region with ice and sleet through southern New England and New York State. 
The National Weather Service says snow will start falling in the Berkshires between 2 and 3 p.m. and isn't expected to stop until Tuesday morning. Accuweather says major impacts of up to 2 feet of snow could occur in the higher elevations of the Catskills and Berkshires hills. 
So far only Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts has canceled classes but we expect there may be more cancellations and delays once the full impact of the storm becomes apparent. We will be updating this article with any new closings and cancellations into Monday morning. 
The Northern and central Berkshires are anticipated to get up to 6 inches of snow over a 12-hour period. Snowfall on Sunday afternoon will be heaviest at about an inch to 2 inches an hour. There'll be a lull on Monday afternoon as a second storm moves through the region and into Tuesday. 
The state Department of Transportation is urging people to stay off the roads and snow emergencies have been declared in a number of local communities: no parking on streets during snowfall so plows can get through. Motor vehicles in the way may be towed.

Hunter College Snaps MCLA Men's Basketball's Winning Streak

MCLA Sports Information
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- MCLA's Noah Yearsley scored 26 points, but it wasn't enough as the men's basketball team saw their nine game winning streak snapped by Hunter College 84-79 Friday afternoon in non league action.
In the opening half, neither team led by more than six points as the Hawks (5-13) took a slim 41-39 lead into halftime. The same held true in the closing half, but with six minutes remaining, Hunter led 67-62. MCLA (12-5) responded with a 7-0 spurt to grab a 69-67 lead as Yearsley scored five points in the run, but still with five minutes left to play.
After trading leads over the next several minutes, Hunter took the lead for good on Melvin Collins' three point play with under two minutes remaining making it 77-74. MCLA's Ki-Shawn Monroe converted for two on the other end to get within a point, but George Keener's bucket and FT extended back to a four point edge with under a minute remaining.
Monroe cut it in half with 25 seconds left, but MCLA was forced to foul. Keener made three FT's down the stretch to preserve the win and end the Trailblazers winning streak.
