Flash flood watch issued for portions of central Pa.
In addition to a flash flood warning set to expire at 9 p.m., the National Weather Service at State College has also issued a flash flood watch until 10 p.m.
The watch includes Dauphin, Lebanon, Adams, York, and Lancaster counties, specifically in Lancaster, Gettysburg, Lebanon, Hershey, Harrisburg, and York.
Forecasters expanded the watch due to a slow-moving front that will continue to dump heavy rainfall from thunderstorms across the “watch” area the rest of Saturday evening.
“Extremely wet soils will lead to rapid runoff and possible flash flooding in areas of heavy rain,” forecasters said. “You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.”
