Patchy fog has developed across the valley tonight and temperatures for many were below freezing at 9pm. This will lead to icy spots on the roads through morning. With black ice an issue, allow for some extra travel time and be cautious. Temps bottom out in the 20s to low 30s.
We are still unsettled Thursday as another front/upper level disturbance moves through. This will keep patchy clouds around again much of the day and could bring a snow shower or some flurries by the afternoon and evening-especially in the Berkshires.
Our focus shifts to cold and wind arriving over the next few days. We turn breezy Thursday behind a passing arctic front and temperatures will fall back into the 20s Thursday night. We get blustery Friday into Saturday with gusts to 20-30mph. Our temperatures will be stuck in the low 30s for highs, so wind chills in the teens and 20s are likely! Chills may even dip into single digits Friday night.
Our next storm will move across the Country over the weekend and low pressure will move into New York State by Sunday night and Monday morning.
The current outlook is for all snow Sunday night through Monday morning, then possibly a wintry mix ending midday Monday. It is still too early to talk totals, but we may see “shovel-able” snow here in western Mass. Our arctic cold looks to linger through at least midweek.
