Snow expected to hit Berkshires this afternoon


PITTSFIELD -- More snow is heading for the Berkshires this afternoon, with 3 to 5 inches expected to accumulate overnight.

The snow could begin by 3 p.m., National Weather Service meteorologist Evan Heller told The Eagle on Tuesday morning.

A winter weather advisory is in effect from 1 p.m. today until 6 a.m. on Wednesday. A wind chill advisory will be in effect from 6 p.m. today until noon on Wednesday.

The snow is moving from the south and could start earlier in places like Great Barrington, Heller said. The southern part of the county could see more snow, between 4 and 6 inches.

Much of the county, including the Pittsfield region, should expect about 3 to 5 inches to accumulate by Wednesday morning.

"The brunt of it will be tonight," said Heller.

The heaviest snow will likely fall between 7 tonight and 1 a.m. on Wednesday. Snow could continue to fall until sunrise, he said.
