The National Weather Service continues to post the Hazardous Weather Outlook for the Berkshires including all of western Mass spreading from the Adirondacks to Lake George to southern Vermont.  They expect this storm to continue to produce moderate rainfall into tonight.

On the heels of this storm is another system that the NWS is expecting more widespread heavy rain and wind Friday night into Saturday.   The combination of heavy rain and strong winds are likely to expedite the clearing of leaves from trees onto streets and yards across the Berkshires.  If you can safely clear all leaves and debris from your street’s drainage grates it may prevent water from flooding your street and perhaps your yard or even basement.

Below is the complete National Weather Service forecast for the week…
