STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - A flood watch is in effect for much of Pennsylvania due to rising temperatures, rainy weather and melting ice on rivers and streams.
The National Weather Service office in State College says no serious flooding has occurred yet, but that there's a potential for problems along rivers and streams especially in the eastern half of the state.
Meteorologist Rob Radzanowski says the temperature surge and the rainfall is causing the ice and snow on the rivers to melt faster than it normally would.
