Berkshires May See Rare May Snowfall
You probably will not be needing to prep your snow blower for another winter blast anytime soon, but you may want to take out your snow shovel and have a bag of salt ready this weekend. We have an unseasonably cold and snowy forecast ahead.
The northeastern U.S. is about to get a cold spring farewell from winter, and the Berkshires may be looking at some potential snow.
Forecaster’s at the National Weather Service in Albany say that the polar vortex could bring a rare May snowfall and some accompanying record-low temperatures to some areas over the Mother’s Day weekend.
Forecasters say that a low-pressure system off the coast of southern New England is pulling cold air down from the north.
Forecasters are predicting as much as 2 inches of snow in the Berkshire Mountains tonight into Saturday. Snow in May is in fact a rare occurrence, as Massachusetts has not had measurable snow during the month since 2002.
