Weather Alert: Flood Warning remains in effect for Hampden County Monday morning

Weather News

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The 22News Storm Team continues the Weather Alert for the potential of roadways and streams being flooded, especially through the morning commute.

  • The heaviest of the rain has passed. Light rain showers this morning on top of all the rain we received this weekend could lead to flooded roadways and streams this morning. Use extreme caution when driving.
  • Monday is looking to be a partly sunny day and there will be the chance for more showers and storms mainly in the afternoon.
  • Flooding is occurring on the Westfield River in parts of Hampden county.

22News spoke with Brad Malone from Albany, who was driving through western Massachusetts during the heavy rain this weekend.

“Horrific. Seems like it’s never going to end. The pockets just get heavier and heavier and the roads seem to get covered quickly. Didn’t seem all that safe all that much,” Malone said.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
