Heavy rain and wind gusts will also be a concern for Thursday

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The 22News Storm Team has declared Wednesday a Weather Alert Day in order to give you a “heads up” about the potential for this potentially hazardous weather.

Flood Advisory for Pioneer Valley until 630PM, Berkshire County until 7PM

  • VERY LOW THREAT: Small hail

Timing:

  • AFTERNOON-EARLY EVENING: Scattered downpours & storms
