Print Story | Email Story
Another storm moving through the region could mean up to a foot of snow over North Berkshire and the hilltowns through Monday. 
The National Weather Service in Albany, N.Y., is forecasting anywhere from 2 to 8 inches across Berkshire County, eastern New York and Southern Vermont. Heavy bands of snow beginning around 4 p.m. are expected to drop 6 to 12 inches over Northern Berkshire.
Snowfall rates may reach a half inch up to one inch per hour at times this evening and tonight.
The NWS has issued a winter storm warning for Northern Berkshire and Southern Vermont and an advisory for Pittsfield south through Monday at 1 p.m.
Pittsfield declared a snow emergency Sunday morning: park on the even side of the street through Monday at 7 a.m. and the odd side from then through Tuesday at 7 a.m. McKay Street Parking Garage will be open for overnight parking. 
Dalton has declared a snow emergency beginning at 5 p.m. Sunday and North Adams is reminding residents that there is no overnight parking on the street. 
Greylock Snow Day is predicting a snow day Monday "highly likely" for school districts in North and Central Berkshire and a 50/50 chance of cancelation to likely delay for south of Pittsfield.
iBerkshires will post any delays and cancellations on the front page and in this article as they come in.
National Grid said its primary concerns are the mix of sleet and snow along with gusty winds. The wind gusts and accumulation of heavy snow have the potential to damage trees and knock down power
wires, causing power outages across the region. 
The utility has positioned 491 field-based crews and more than 1,200 personnel to respond to outages or other damage.
