A Snowy Tuesday in the Berkshires

Print Story | Email Story

The weather outside is ... a bit frightful this Tuesday morning.

Snow is falling across the region, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a special weather statement: "Snow has developed across the southern Green Mountains, northern Berkshires, and Washington county in eastern New York. Snowfall of varying intensity with temperatures near or below freezing could result in areas of slippery travel and reduced visibility. Around 1 to 3 inches of snow will accumulate, especially in the higher terrain. Use caution if traveling into the afternoon."

Be careful driving if you're out and about today running errands, getting to and from work, or bringing the kiddos somewhere to keep them entertained during this February school vacation week. (If you're in warmer climates this vacation week, lucky you!)

Be aware that the snow today likely will change to rain in most of the region early this afternoon, making it less pretty and more messy. The rest of the week looks pretty quiet on the weather front, though we will see more seasonably cold temperatures, with lows in the single digits Wednesday and Thursday.

The weekend outlook, though? Sunny and temps around 40. Can't beat that in February!

State Establishes Field Medical Station in Worcester's DCU Center

By Stephen DravisiBerkshires Staff

Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito exprsses appreciation for the state's first-responders and front-line health workers. 
WORCESTER, Mass. — The commonwealth's first field medical station is in the works at the DCU Center in Worcester, and it likely will be the first of several around the commonwealth.
 
Gov. Charlie Baker and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito were at the DCU on Wednesday afternoon to provide their daily update on the state's efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
Ultimately, the sports arena will hold more than 200 beds. The Massachusetts National Guard is constructing the facility in cooperation with the Army Corps of Engineers and University of Massachusetts Memorial Medical Center.
 
Baker said the Worcester site and another planned at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center are the first of the regional facilities planned as "stepdown" for patients who need care but don't need to be in an hospital and can be moved to make room for more severe cases.
