Winter Makes A (Relatively Timid) Debut in the Berkshires
12:51PM / Friday, November 08, 2019

The wind was blowing what was left of the leaves of the trees, the sky was blue while flurries were falling, temperatures were only in the 20s - feels like winter!

In case you've forgotten what winter feels like, step outside today.

The highs for Friday in the Berkshires will barely reach 30 degrees, with snow flurries possibly filling the air, too. Many of us woke up this morning to snow on the ground, too: The National Weather Service out of Albany, N.Y., reported .2 inches in Great Barrington.

This weekend will be chilly but slightly warmer than Friday, with Saturday's highs in the upper 30s and Sunday reaching into the 40s.

But everyone is looking at a potential snow event next Tuesday (see the AccuWeather map below), so we here at will keep our eyes on that.

Just to jog your memory, last week saw the first National Weather Service Winter Storm Watch of the season the week before Thanksgiving, with another a few days later. And check out the graphic below for the top 10 snowiest Novembers on record with the Albany NWS.

In the meantime, remember how to bundle up: Layers are always a good idea, as is keeping your head and feet snug and cozy in hats and warm shoes.
