Wednesday’s rain making a mess on the roadways

Rain

CHICOPEE, Mass (WWLP)- A flash flood watch remains in effect for all of western Massachusetts, and the roadways are slick.

The first couple hours of rainfall on the roadways pose their own threat.  There is oil from automobiles that has built up on the road, and water creating a slick surface for tires. As the rain continues to fall, the amount of water on the road becomes the problem; causing puddling and the potential to hydroplane.

Give yourself plenty of time to make your commute and drive slow.

Also, make sure your windshield wipers are working properly before you get on the roadway.
