Flood Watch beginning Wednesday morning, additional rainfall of 1-3 inches likely

A Flood Watch has been issued for Berks County from Wednesday morning, April 3, 6:00 AM to Thursday afternoon, April 4, at 6:00 PM. Flooding caused by excessive rainfall is possible.

Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood prone locations.

Additional rainfall amounts between 1.0 to 3.0 inches are likely across portions of the Watch area through Thursday. About two dozen regional river points are forecast to approach flood stage Wednesday into Thursday, with several exceeding flood stage.

The most intense rain is expected to fall Wednesday into Wednesday evening, and with these high rainfall rates, flash flooding cannot be ruled out. Excessive runoff may continue to cause rivers, creeks, and streams to rise through the end of the week even when the rain has ended.

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.
