Windy & Dry Conditions Elevate Brush Fire Threat


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – It will be bright and sunny today but also very windy! Winds could gust up over 40 mph along with a few possible power outages.

The strong winds combined with low humidity levels, strong April sunshine and the recent limited rainfall around here means the threat for brush fires will be high and has prompted a Red Flag Warning for Berkshire County.

Today is not a good day to burn brush and will likely be banned in your community anyway!
