…FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH SATURDAY EVENING…
The Flood Watch continues for
* A portion of central Pennsylvania, including the following
counties, Cameron, Clearfield, Columbia, Elk, McKean, Montour,
Northern Centre, Northern Clinton, Northern Lycoming,
Northumberland, Potter, Snyder, Southern Centre, Southern
Clinton, Southern Lycoming, Sullivan, Tioga, Union, and Warren.
* Periods of rain will continue to fall over the area today, some
of which could be heavy this morning. 1 to 3 inches of rain are
expected across the watch area by early this evening. The rain
is expected to change to a wintry mix by late this evening and
eventually snow overnight.
* Area waterways are covered with ice due to our recent arctic
outbreak. Rapidly rising stream and river levels may lead to a
break up of the ice, leading to localized ice jam flooding, as
the ice collects at constrictions. The most susceptible areas
are at bridges or bends in the river, where ice jams could clog
the flow, causing water to back up onto land.
Keep an eye on area waterways and be alert for sudden rises.
