Recent rain keeps risk of drought low

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Despite a lack of snowfall this past winter, we’ve still seen quite a bit of rainfall so far this year. During this time of year, it tends do get pretty dry with the lack of vegetation and low humidity.

Fortunately we’ve seen quite a bit of rain over the last few months and the rain has been beneficial. The grass is getting green and plants are blooming.

“It seems like we’ve had enough rain as of late,” Andy Grondalski of the Sixteen Acres Garden Center told 22News. “We may go through a little dry stretch coming up, but it seems to me that we’ve gotten quite a bit of rainfall and the plants seem to be pushing up getting ready to go.”

According to the U.S. Drought Monitor only parts of far eastern and far western Hampden County and southern Berkshire County are experiencing abnormally dry conditions.
