|Dig Out the Snow Shovels: Storms Could Drop 3-8 Inches|
|05:30PM / Sunday, November 01, 2020|
Mother Nature's dusting of snow and ice over Halloween just wasn't scary enough. Now she's getting more serious with a strong chance of up to 8 inches over the next two days.
The National Weather Service in Albany, N.Y., has issued a winter weather advisory from 7 p.m. on Sunday through Tuesday morning with snow accumulations ranging from 3 to 8 inches in Southern Vermont and the Northern Berkshire.
Reminder: Winter Parking Bans go into effect beginning Sunday for most communities in the Berkshires. That means no overnight parking on the street and no parking on the street during snowstorms so that plows can get through. Violators may find their vehicles ticketed and/or towed.
Accuweather says a "potent cold front" now over the Great Lakes will bring blustery winds and precipitation over the Northeast into Election Day.
Strong winds may cause damage with downed trees and wires so there's the potential of power outages in some areas.
There are two systems that will affect weather over New England: the cold front coming from the Great Lakes and a weaker storm moving south from Canada.
But expect the cold to move out pretty quickly as a warming trend begins midweek that will drive temperatures back up in the 60s.
