Light Berkshire snowfall does little to help dry November


Tuesday's light snowfall yielded only a half-inch of accumulated snow at Pittsfield Municipal Airport as November continues on track to be the driest month on record here since 1938. So far, only 0.64 inches of precipitation have been measured.

Surrounding areas, including Albany, Glens Falls and Poughkeepsie, N.Y., are also reporting one of the driest months on record. For the year so far, we're down nearly 25 percent from the normal amount of rain and snow.

With no major storms on the horizon over the next five days, look for occasional snow showers, nothing to worry about. But good news for ski areas: It will continue to be colder than normal for late November, perfect conditions for snowmaking.
