Weather Alert: High wind warning issued for parts of the area with 50 mph+ winds possible

Weather News

(WWLP) – The 22News Storm Team has declared a Weather Alert through Friday morning.  Our primary concern with this storm is for damaging winds that could gust over 40 MPH.

A High Wind Warning has been issued for central/eastern Hampden & Hampshire Counties until 4AM Friday. Gusts over 50mph are possible.

The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory for the rest of western Massachusetts through Friday morning. 

Thunderstorms, with heavy downpours and wind gusts to 60 mph will arrive in western Massachusetts 12:30am-2:30am. Wind gusts up to 60mph are likely through 3am Friday. Tree damage and power outages will be possible during this time. The heavy rain may cause some street flooding overnight.

Be ready for a slower than normal morning commute on Friday, due to lingering wind debris.

Wind gusts will decrease gradually and the weather will dry out after sunrise Friday.
