Print Story | Email Story
It may be spring but winter isn't quite done with us. This week's drop in temperatures and flurries are being followed by a more significant storm that could drop 2 to 6 inches over the region this weekend. 
 
A winter weather advisory is in effect beginning at 11 p.m. on Friday through 11 p.m. Saturday for Berkshire County, Southern Vermont and eastern New York. 
 
The National Weather Service in Albany, N.Y., says be prepared for gusty winds and icy roads on the morrow as snow turns to freezing rain on Saturday. 
 
These periods of rain and sleet will turn back to snow by Saturday evening and snowfall rates may get close to one inch per hour late Saturday before precipitation ends. Areas to south and east may see flooding as more than 3 inches of rain is expected to fall along the Atlantic Coast, according to Accuweather. 
 
Up to 18 inches of snow could fall across upstate New York and central Vermont but North Berkshire looks to get 2 to 3 inches, with the potential for 4 to 6 along the Vermont border. Southern Berkshire could see 1 to 2 inches of snow that could turn to fully to rain/sleet. 
 
A reminder that most parking bans are still in place until at least March 31. Also, Thunderfest in Adams has been postponed to Sunday, March 24.

Hoosac Harvest Annual Seedling Swap Returns

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Hoosac Harvest's Annual Seedling Swap returns to downtown this year on Saturday, May 25 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the North Adams Farmers Market in its new location on Main Street.
 
All seedlings are available at no cost; there's no requirement to bring any in order to take some home. Whether individuals are dropping off seedlings for exchange or visiting to browse, it's advisable to bring a tray for collecting new plants. Shared seedlings may include surplus vegetables or flowers purchased or cultivated, as well as cuttings or excess plants from personal yards. Participants are encouraged to bring and exchange whatever they can.
 
All donations go toward subsidizing CSA shares—weekly "shares" of a local farmer's produce over the course of an annual growing season—for people in the community.
