Flood Watch in Effect Thurs/Fri


* A portion of central Pennsylvania, including the following areas,

Columbia, Montour, Northern Lycoming, Northumberland, Schuylkill, Snyder, Southern Lycoming, Sullivan, Tioga and Union.

* From Thursday afternoon through Friday morning

* The combination of heavy rain and melting snow will increase the

risk of flooding on Christmas Eve into Christmas Day.

* Significant rises are expected on small streams with mainstem

Susquehanna river flooding most likely upstream of Sunbury. Urban and poor drainage flooding is more probable due to both storm drains that are clogged with piles of snow and to the briefly intense rainfall.


A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on

current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be alert

for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding

should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.

If you see flooding due to blocked storm drain, please call the dispatch center non-emergency number (570) 988-4539.
