School Closings: Check our page for school closures. Currently, Stamford and Abbott Memorial will be closed Monday as well as all schools in the Southwestern Vermont Supervisory Union.
Other closings and delays:
A monster snowstorm will bring up to 18 inches of snow across the Berkshires over the next 24 to 36 hours.
Initial forecasts of 4 to 6 inches have now been upgraded to 12 to 18 across the region with ice and sleet through southern New England and New York State.
The National Weather Service says snow will start falling in the Berkshires between 2 and 3 p.m. and isn't expected to stop until Tuesday morning. Accuweather says major impacts of up to 2 feet of snow could occur in the higher elevations of the Catskills and Berkshires hills.
So far only Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts has canceled classes but we expect there may be more cancellations and delays once the full impact of the storm becomes apparent. We will be updating this article with any new closings and cancellations into Monday morning.
The Northern and central Berkshires are anticipated to get up to 6 inches of snow over a 12-hour period. Snowfall on Sunday afternoon will be heaviest at about an inch to 2 inches an hour. There'll be a lull on Monday afternoon as a second storm moves through the region and into Tuesday.
The state Department of Transportation is urging people to stay off the roads and snow emergencies have been declared in a number of local communities: no parking on streets during snowfall so plows can get through. Motor vehicles in the way may be towed.
