The National Weather Service in Pittsburgh has issued a

* Flood Watch for portions of east central Ohio, Pennsylvania,

* From 7 PM EST this evening through Saturday afternoon

* Periods of rain are expected through midday Friday before
  precipitation begins to change to a wintry mix. Rainfall amounts
  of up to 2.00 inches across the region and snow melt as a
  result of the warm temperature may result in localized flooding.
  In addition, expected rises from rainfall and snow melt will
  result in movement and break-ups of ice on area rivers and
  streams, which could lead to ice jams and flooding.


A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

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.
