SPRINGFIELD, Mass (WWLP) — A flash flood watch is in effect for Hampden, Hampshire and Franklin counties until 10 a.m. today.

A flash flood watch means the heavy rain we’re experiencing has the potential to cause flash flooding, but it has yet to occur. One flash flooding is ongoing, a warning will be issued. 

Heavy rain at times through the mid-morning will produce 1 to 3 inches of rainfall with isolated amounts up to 4 inches possible. That’s enough rain over a short enough period to produce localized flash flooding, so watch out for water pooling on roads. 

A wind advisory is also in effect across all of Western Massachusetts starting this afternoon through the evening for winds ranging from 15 to 30 mph, with gusts up to 44 to 55 mph likely. Downed trees, tree limbs and scattered power outages could result from those winds.
