Flash Flood: Heavy rains increasing flash flood danger for much of Utah

The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued a Flash Flood Watch for its entire coverage area in West Virginia through Friday at 8 p.m.

By Saturday, the area could get up to three or four inches of rain, he said.

Heavy rainfall is expected to move through the midstate Friday night into Saturday morning, according to forecasters with AccuWeather and the National Weather Service at State College.

Because of its low elevation, Ocean City does not experience flash floods, but if the heaviest rain coincides with high tide, street flooding could occur. Rainfall totals will range from one to four inches overnight, with localized higher amounts. The ground is still quite wet so the concern for flash flooding is high.
