Wednesday’s rain made it difficult to enjoy some weekly summer events.
Because of the off-and-on rain all day, East Longmeadow canceled its outdoor concert. Northampton and Springfield canceled their “Movies in the Park.”
With more rain in the forecast this week, Patricia McCarthy, from “Creamy Delights” in Hadley, told 22News they stay open even in the rain, but weather definitely cuts into their profits. “Definitely affected by the weather. Hot sunny days are much better. It probably cuts business down, I probably do 40% of what I would do on a nice day.”
Heavy rainfall is possible overnight into Thursday.
