Temperatures are cold tonight with most in the 20s before 11pm. We drop into the lower 20s not long after midnight, then temps will slowly rise through the morning. High clouds will continue to increase through dawn and skies turn mostly cloudy in the early morning. Wet weather is on the way, but looks to hold off until after 10am.
A potent storm system is moving into New England Thursday, beginning as snow for many-even here in the valley-close to Noon. Here in the valley, snow will change to rain quickly, so little to no accumulation is expected. In the hills, 1-3 inches of snow are possible-mainly on grass and elevated surfaces. Roads may become slushy-especially through northern Berkshire and parts of Franklin counties. Everyone will turn to rain through the evening and rain may be heavy at times with 1-2 inches possible. Showers taper off Friday morning and may mix with some snow in the high elevations before ending.
We stay mostly cloudy and blustery Friday with highs around 50. Clouds linger into Saturday as well due to our next cold front approaching from the northwest. This system won’t have much wet weather with it, but some showers are possible Saturday evening. Temperatures are back to ‘normal’ over the weekend with highs in the mid and upper 50s Saturday and Sunday. We stay seasonable and dry for Halloween and continue to warm slightly through midweek.
