Flood Watch for central Pennsylvania

... Flood Watch in effect from Saturday afternoon through Sunday evening...

The National Weather Service in State College has issued a

* Flood Watch for central Pennsylvania.

* From Saturday afternoon through Sunday evening.

* Warming temperatures this weekend will lead to sufficient
melting and ice break-up on waterways in central Pennsylvania.
The combination of potential ice jams and forecast rainfall
amounts between 0.50 and 1 inch could result in flooding.

* Ice jams can form quickly and cause sharp backwater rises
especially on smaller streams and where tributaries flow into
main Stem rivers.

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.
