Hello! I’m 22News Storm Team Meteorologist Brian Lapis. Clouds will slowly increase tonight. Some sprinkles of rain, freezing rain or snow flurries are possible before sunrise Wednesday morning.
Wednesday’s 7am temperatures will be in the low to mid 30s. Watch out for patchy freezing rain sprinkles. Any rain/snow showers that we get Wednesday morning will be scattered. Steadier and heavier rain will develop during the afternoon hours. Wednesday’s high temperatures will be in the upper 30s and low 40s. Some sleet and snow will mix with the rain Wednesday afternoon in northern Berkshire and western Franklin County.
After 9pm Wednesday, the rain will change to snow from northwest to southeast across western Massachusetts. There could be some briefly heavy snow after midnight. Temperatures will drop well below freezing before sunrise Thursday. So, we expect a snowy and icy Am commute on Thursday. All of western Massachusetts will see at least some snow showers.
Once the snow tapers off Thursday morning, it’ll turn into a cold and windy day – expect highs only in the low-20s!!
