Berkshires Could See Mix of Rain/Snow Overnight

Print Story | Email Story
There's a winter weather advisory in effect overnight Friday in the Berkshires and a chance of up to 5 inches of snow. 
 
The National Weather Service in Albany, N.Y., issued the advisory effective from midnight to 10 a.m. on Saturday with warnings of slippery roads in the morning. 
 
The snowfall could reach up to an inch an hour for a brief period in the morning and will be accompanied by winds up to 40 mph. There's also a chance of sleet and freezing rain in the mix.
 
Temperatures could reach a high of 40 in the Hudson River valley on Saturday and Sunday will be windy, with some gusts possibly reaching 35-45 mph across eastern New York and the Berkshires. High temperatures Sunday ranging from the mid-20s/lower 30s for higher terrain, to the mid 30s to around 40 for valley areas. Lows Sunday night in the teens and 20s. Monday will be similar.
 
Accuweather is forecasting a dip in temperatures starting Tuesday after a fairly mild couple weeks.  
 
"When factoring in mild air prior to the storm's arrival and AccuWeather RealFeel Temperatures 10-20 degrees lower than the actual temperature from Saturday night to Sunday, it will feel like the middle of January and the cold will be penetrating," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.
 
The colder temperatures and quick hits of snow may last through the end of the month, says Accuweather.

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council has selected a former Drury High teacher to be its new city clerk. 
 
The unanimous decision to offer the post to Cathleen King was made on Monday night. 
 
King was a founder of the high school's alternative education program, the E3 Academy, in 2012. She's spent the last few years in Salem when her husband took a position of Salem State University. 
 
"We are just trying to work our way back to getting to the North Adams area, we have a home in Clarksburg. And I was interested in the position because I have had a great interest in North Adams ever since I came to the area," she said.
