CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Some thunderstorms with frequent lightning and some heavy rain have been moving through western Massachusetts. Storms that moved into the Springfield area did weaken but there are still some stronger storms moving through southern Berkshire County.
Remember, the safest place to be during a thunderstorm is indoors or stay in your car. If you can hear thunder, you’re close enough to a thunderstorm to get struck by lightning.
Heavy rain is accompanying these storms, if you see flooded roads, don’t drive through them.
We will continue to track the progression of this storm as well as more widespread wet weather for Saturday.
