Pennsylvania, Mifflin

Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 2:23 PM EDT on September 28, 2016

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on September 30, 2016


... Flood Watch remains in effect from 2 am EDT Thursday through
Friday morning...

The Flood Watch continues for

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

* From 2 am EDT Thursday through Friday morning

* a long duration rainfall will impact the area from this evening
through Friday morning. Widespread amounts of 2 to 4 inches are
expected across much of the watch area... with locally higher
amounts expected over east facing slopes of the Laurel
Highlands and south central mountains.

* Dry initial conditions may initially mitigate the flood threat
across the area. However... persistent banding of moderate to
heavy rainfall and upslope flow into the south central mountains
and Laurel Highlands may produce locally heavier amounts over 5
inches... which could bring small streams over bankful and
produce flooding of roadways and poor drainage areas. The threat
for mainstem river flooding is low at this time... given
extremely dry antecedent conditions... but this will be watched
closely over the next 24 to 36 hours.

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.
