First Warning Forecast

Wind damage, flooding late Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

Afternoon and early evening downpours and storms Tuesday left some flooding and wind damage in their wake. 

Most of the flooding and reports of trees down came in from the Deerfield to Greenfield corridor along the Connecticut River.

The Hillside Road area of Deerfield was particularly hard hit with reports of numerous tree tops snapped clean off around 5 p.m. Tuesday. 

No word yet from the National Weather Service on whether the storm will be investigated for a possible microburst or weak tornado touchdown. 

Also, rainfall estimates of 1 to 2+” came in from parts of central Franklin and western Hampshire counties resulting in some street, stream and basement flooding.

Any leftover evening downpours will end before midnight and the extremely muggy conditions will get air-lifted out of here starting Wednesday afternoon. 

The front edge of drier air pushes in during the mid-day Wednesday. 

Some additional downpours with thunder and lightning are possible from mid-morning to mid-afternoon as the front slowly pushes through.  Rain amounts likely don’t rival Tuesday’s downpours though.

Behind the front, the air gradually becomes more comfortable for the second half of the week!
