Pennsylvania – With steady rain going to be staying here in Pennsylvania and the rest of the Appalachian region over the next few days, be prepared to see water levels rise in our local streams and creeks.

That also means that, depending on how fast and heavy the rain falls in some areas, roads that are close to the water could end up getting flooded.

The next dry day is forecasted for Wednesday.

Puddles can be deeper than you think, and even just a few inches of water can cause hydroplaning or even sweep your car off of the road.

Take it slow. If the road seems flooded, don’t be afraid to turn around or take another route.
