April Fool — Springtime Temperatures Will Give Way to Cold, Snow

It's not over yet.
 
Berkshire County residents can expect some snow Thursday, according to AccuWeather. 
 
In North Adams, snow is expected to start falling around 2 p.m. and continue until about 8 p.m. Temperatures will hover around 40 degrees and drop throughout the day, hitting the low 20s overnight.
 
Total accumulation should be around an "inch or two."
 
It is a different story in Central County. According to Accuweather, Pittsfield residents can expect a coating to an inch of snow Wednesday night through Thursday morning and the same thing Thursday evening from 5 to 7 p.m. 
 
South County is getting away with little to no accumulation with Accuweather predicting some light snowfall on Thursday from 2 until 5 p.m.
 
The National Weather Service currently has a hazardous weather outlook for the region with warnings and advisories to the west and north. NWS is forecasting rain mixed with snow across the region with possible light snowfall amounts. "There remains some uncertainty regarding the storm track and snowfall amounts," according to the agency.
 
WTEN Meteorologist Steve Caporizzo said folks can expect some "heavy and wet snow in some areas." He did not anticipate a "real big impact" in and around the Capital Region but said:
 
"If you are going north and west the snow picks up. The farther northwest, the higher elevation, the more snow you will get."
 
But rest assured, Berkshire County residents should not expect more than 1 to 2 inches (knock on wood).
 
Too soon to park the snowblower? That is not a question iBerkshires.com can answer.
