Flood watch issued for York County

York County will be under a flood watch Thursday night, according to the National Weather Service.

The flood watch will go into effect at 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27, and continue until 8 a.m. Friday, Sept. 28.

The weather service said a wave of low pressure will bring rain to the region Thursday afternoon and into the night. 

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

Flooding is possible in normal low-lying areas and areas with poor drainage, according to the weather service.

Streams and creeks could overflow their banks, but larger river flooding is not expected, the weather service said.

Adams and Lancaster counties will be under a flood watch as well.
