The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for York and other counties in central Pennsylvania.

The watch — which means flooding is possible — is in effect until 10 p.m.. Friday, Aug. 3.

Several rounds of moderate to heavy showers, as well as possible thunderstorms, Thursday and Friday could lead to rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches an hour, according to the weather service.

National Weather Service meteorologist John Banghoff said earlier this week that since the ground is already saturated from last week's heavy rainfall, the chance of flooding in York County is higher than normal.

He said the weather service officially recorded 10.27 inches of rain last week at the York Airport near Thomasville.
