Rainfall totals ranging from 1 to 3 inches raise flooding concerns through Sunday morning.

Significant water rises are expected to affect poor drainage areas, creeks, and streams. Though river levels will jump as well, flooding of those arteries is not expected at this time. Keep in mind the flooding threat lingers through about noon on Sunday even though we dry out Saturday night. That’s because any flooded roads, creeks, or streams may need time for the excess water to subside.

 

A Flood Watch remains in effect for the entire region through 2 A.M. Sunday. A Flood Warning goes into effect for the Yellow Breeches Creek at Camp Hill, Cumberland County Sunday morning through Sunday afternoon. Minor flooding is forecasted. Saturday.
