Mother Nature plans one more wet, white blanket for region
Springlike weather is coming to the Berkshires and Southern Vermont on Sunday, but not without Mother Nature sneaking in one more snowstorm before we can all start admiring April's fresh buds and bulbs.
The National Weather Service in Albany, N.Y., has issued a winter weather advisory from 7 p.m. Friday through 10 a.m. Saturday morning, with parts of the region waking to 3 to 7 inches of snow.
The overnight blast is expected to hit Southern Vermont, Western Massachusetts, as well as nearby New York state.
The Weather Service advises drivers to beware of slippery road conditions Friday night into Saturday. Snowfall is expected to occur at a rate of a half an inch to an inch per hour.
The snow might be preceded by some rain before 10 p.m., with low temperatures of around 31. On Saturday, snow will likely taper off by 11 a.m., after which there's a chance of more rain. The day will be mostly cloudy, with a high near 45.
A reprieve is expected on Sunday, as high temperatures will go up to the high 50s.
