7 Day Forecast

Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms are possible beginning early Saturday afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center has put all of Berkshire County and and most of the valley in a slight risk meaning there is a chance for scattered strong to severe thunderstorms, where eastern Hampden County is in a marginal risk, meaning there is an isolated chance for strong to severe thunderstorms. Scattered means there is a better chance for strong to severe thunderstorms.
