Flood Watch: Storm could bring heavy rain to parts of Pa.

7QAI_weather_symbols_icons_clip_artAssociated Press — The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for much of southeastern Pennsylvania as remnants of tropical Storm Andrea move through the region.

Forecasters expect heavy rain to begin this evening and continue for several hours. Two to three inches of rain are expected, but some areas may get up to five inches, and that could lead to flash flooding.

The flood watch is in effect for areas from the southwest of Harrisburg to northeastern Pennsylvania, as well as for Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey.

A small stream flood advisory is also in effect for southeastern Pennsylvania all the way up to the State College area until 2 p.m. Friday. Less rain is expected in those areas.
