York County is under a flood watch starting at 2 p.m. Monday and going through the evening, the National Weather Service announced.

York and Lancaster counties could see flash flooding from excessive rainfall, the NWS said.

In the lowest parts of York and Lancaster, only 1.2 to 1.4 inches of hourly rainfall from a few thunderstorms can cause flash flooding, according to AccuWeather.com. Rivers, creeks and low-lying areas are at risk.
