York County flash flood watch moved up

York County will be under a flash flood watch starting Monday afternoon into Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

The remnants of Hurricane Florence will hit the area the night of Monday, Sept. 17, and could bring locally heavy rain to the central Pennsylvania area, the weather service said.

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

The flash flood watch will go into effect at 2 p.m. and continue until noon Tuesday, Sept. 18. The watch was initially supposed to start at  8 p.m., but the weather service changed the time to 2 p.m. late Monday morning. 

The weather service said rain totals by late Tuesday morning will average between half an inch to 1½ inches over most of the area, but higher amounts of 2 to 4 inches are possible in some spots, which could lead to flooding.

Adams, Dauphin, Cumberland and Lancaster counties are included in the watch as well.
