Pretty leaves hide ugly roads. Today Was a Windy day but it was 73º out. Very Nice day after a lot of heavy soaking rain last night.

Soaking rain and strong winds today and tonight

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – After a mostly dry October, we’re in for a true soaking Wednesday through
Thursday morning.

Here’s what we expect for timing.

  • 10am-noon: Chance for a few showers
  • Afternoon: Steady Rain Develops, Breezy
  • Evening & Overnight: Rain, Heavy at times. Windy. Isolated strong thunderstorm.
  • Thursday morning through 9am: Scattered Showers Taper Off
  • Thursday: Staying Windy, Isolated PM Shower/Sprinkle. Some sun.

Rcar-on-wet-road2ainfall Amounts should generally be between 1-2″ with some isolated areas measuring close to 3″ of rain through Thursday morning. We expect the highest rainfall totals in the hills west of the Connecticut River.

Street flooding will be a concern, especially as many storm drains are covered with leaves. With a mostly dry October, we are not anticipating river flooding. If you encounter a flooded road, “turn around, don’t drown” to avoid injury and car damage.

Wind will be gusty. Wind will pick up in intensity this afternoon and we’ll be dealing with steady winds of 10-20 mph. Wind GUSTS will likely be in the range of 20-35mph with the possibility for winds to gust over 40mph in the Berkshires. It’s a great idea to tie down or bring in loose objects outside your home as they may blow around.

There is a low risk for an isolated strong or severe thunderstorm overnight. Any thunderstorms have the potential to intensify winds, which may bring wind damage

The growing season has ended!
