Despite recent rain, some areas are still abnormally dry

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Western Massachusetts received some much-needed rain recently. The area saw some heavy rain over the weekend and some showers on Tuesday.

Things are looking pretty green right now but there are some signs that it is getting kind of dry. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor eastern Hampden County, far western Hampden County, southern Berkshire County and northern Franklin County are still in the abnormally dry category.

Melanie Krodel of East Longmeadow says that we could use some more rain. “Flowers need the rain, and you don’t need to water as much. It’s good for the gardener.”

Most areas picked up more than an inch of rain on Sunday, which is helping out with the dry conditions. River levels have also come up a bit as well.

The U.S. Drought Monitor will release an update on Thursday.
