Description
Flood Watch issued December 9 at 5:40AM EST until December 11 at 1:00PM EST by NWS State College PA

* WHAT...Flooding caused by excessive rainfall continues to be
possible.

* WHERE...A portion of central Pennsylvania, including the following
counties, Columbia, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Montour,
Northumberland, Schuylkill, Sullivan and York.

* WHEN...From Sunday afternoon through Monday afternoon.

* IMPACTS...Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers,
creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...
- With generally dry soil conditions and near to below average
streamflows over east-central Pennsylvania, rainfall will be
largely beneficial in nature. However, with rainfall forecast
to exceed 2 inches, there may be some runoff impacts. The
threat of flash flooding is low given modest rainfall rates
less than 1 inch per hour, but some urban, poor drainage, and
small stream flood impacts will be a possibility.

to take action should flooding develop.
