Flash Flood Watch continues into Friday

by: Scott Harbaugh Updated:

UPDATE (6 p.m.)

A flash flood watch will be in effect through Friday night for much of western Pennsylvania.

Overnight showers and a few storms could produce moderate to heavy rain for the morning commute.

Expect delays and possible ponding of water on roads.

There is still the risk of a few showers and an isolated strong storm during the day Friday.

The system will then move out and more comfortable conditions will move in for the weekend.


TRENDING NOW:


UPDATE (9:30 a.m.): A flash flood watch is in effect through Friday night for much of western Pennsylvania, including Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Greene, Lawrence, Venango, Washington and Westmoreland counties.


UPDATE (9 a.m.): A flood advisory has been issued for northeastern Mercer County and southwestern Venango County until 11:45 a.m.


Strong storms and heavy rain are on the way for parts of Western Pennsylvania on Thursday.
 
Expect a couple of rounds of showers and storms as a cold front slowly slides toward the area. Many areas will see more than an inch of rain through this evening, leading to isolated areas of flooding.  

Some of the strong storms will bring 40-plus-mph wind gusts and frequent lightning. Be aware: If you hear thunder, head indoors. Heavy rain and strong storms will taper off after sunset tonight.

Another round of showers and storms is likely Friday before this storm system finally kicks through the area. Additional areas of heavy rain are possible Friday.
