First Warning Forecast

COPY-Scattered showers overnight; possible slippery spots from light icing.

Posted: Updated:

Rain and isolated snow showers continue to move through the area this evening. Most of the wintry weather is isolated to the Berkshires and some of the eastern slopes. The precipitation will continue into the evening, with some areas picking up .25" of rain or an inch or two of snow. 

As temperatures fall to near the freezing mark overnight, there could be some patchy slick or icy spots on the roadways before the sun rises. This will be mostly for the hills, but it can't be ruled out in the valley. 

More upper level energy swing through, keeping us unsettled Friday into Saturday. You'll want to keep the umbrella handy both of those days, though I don't think either is a complete washout. 

A strong area of low pressure departs on Sunday, keeping us very windy throughout the day. Though air temperatures will say the low 40s, it will feel more like the low 30s when you factor in the wind. 

Temperatures will gradually rise heading into next week, with Wednesday potentially reaching 60°. Despite the warm temperatures, we will also have to contend with some soaking rains Tuesday night through Thursday. The rain totals could exceed two inches. That would certainly help our drought situation.
