More rain possible all week in York County

After a few days of dry weather, rain is expected to hit York County once again.

National Weather Service meteorologist John Banghoff said there's a chance of rain every day through Friday, Aug. 3.

Last week rain pummeled York County and caused flooding throughout the area. However, Banghoff said the county won't see as much rain as last week.

Flood waters from the south branch of the Codorus Creek ripped the blacktop surface from Glatfelters Station Road in North Codorus Township, Wednesday, July 25, 2018. Neighbors say the water lifted the road into the air around 7 a.m. and then broke it into chunks. John A. Pavoncello

"We're not expecting inches upon inches of rain," he said, adding that weather officials are expecting between 1 and 3 inches of rain throughout the week.

The weather service is forecasting an 80 percent chance of precipitation Tuesday, July 31, and a 70 percent chance of precipitation Wednesday, Aug. 1.

The chance of precipitation is 40 percent Thursday, Aug. 2, and 50 percent Friday, according to the weather service.

Banghoff said since the ground is already saturated from last week's rainfall, the chance of flash flooding is higher. 

“We just want to continue to encourage people to not drive across flooded roadways," he said.

Banghoff said the weather service officially recorded 10.27 inches of rain from last week at the York Airport near Thomasville. He said nearly a foot of rain was reported in Manchester as well. 

The Harrisburg area also saw 10.27 inches of rain last week, Banghoff said. The total for the month is 11.66 inches of rain, breaking the record for the wettest July in the area. That record was 9.72 inches and set in 1969, according to Banghoff.
