PITTSFIELD -- Snowfall has begun as part of a winter storm which could drop between 10 and 14 inches of snow throughout the Berkshires by Sunday morning, the National Weather Service predicts.

Light snow today is expected to turn into a stream of heavy snowfall by sunset for the Berkshires, according to meteorologists at the National Weather Service.

Light snow is expected during the day, with about two inches of snow possible by late afternoon, National Weather Service meteorologist Ian Lee said.

"There could be brief reductions of visibility," he said.

By 5 p.m., the snow will grow stronger and will make driving prohibitive. Temperatures were hovering around 11 degrees Saturday morning and expected to reach a high of about 20 degrees today. Winds will be at about 10 miles per hour, Lee said.

"It will snow into late morning Sunday until it starts to diminish by early afternoon," Lee said.
