The National Weather Service in Binghamton has issued a Flash Flood Watch for portions of Central New York and Northeast Pennsylvania, including Broome and Tioga counties in the Southern Tier and Bradford, Wayne and Susquehanna counties in Northeast Pennsylvania through this evening, August 13.

Forecasters say areas of very heavy rain are possible as thunderstorms and showers move slowly through the area today and this evening.

Heavy rain will cause rapid rises and possible flash flooding of streams and creeks, overflow of ditches and culverts, and ponding of water on roads.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.

Never drive into flooded areas and always heed posted road and bridge closures and detours.

Over the weekend, heavy rain prompted flash flood warnings for parts of the Northern Tier and Central Pennsylvania with water seen flowing over roads in areas like Rome in Bradford County and portions of Susquehanna County.

Forecasters measured rainfall from storms overnight Friday through Saturday afternoon at up to three inches in Northeast Pennsylvania.
