Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 12:29 PM EDT on September 29, 2016

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on September 30, 2016


... Flood Watch remains in effect through Friday morning...

The Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of central Pennsylvania... including the following
areas... Adams... Bedford... Blair... Franklin... Fulton...
Huntingdon... Somerset and York.

* Through Friday morning

* widespread two and a half to three and a half inch totals have
occurred at higher elevations of Bedford, Fulton, Huntingdon and
Adams counties... as of midday Thursday. While additional
rainfall will be showery this afternoon and tonight... localized areas
may see an additional inch or two through Friday, especially in
the upslope east facing slopes of the Bedford and Fulton
counties.

* Abnormally dry conditions and below normal streamflows preceding
the rain are largely mitigating stream flooding impacts across
the watch area. However... small streams and creeks will still be
susceptible to flooding in areas that receive additional heavy
rainfall through Friday. Mainstem river flooding is not expected
at this time.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding on small
streams... creeks... poor drainage... urban and low-lying areas
based on current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
