Rain wraps up as period of sleet/snow

Posted: Updated:

A narrow (15-mile wide) band of heavy rain, sleet and slushy snow developed in a north-south orientation line from Gratz to Harrisburg to Hanover. Under this band, a slushy coating to as much as 4+" occurred due to the intense nature of the precipitation. This band sat stationary for several hours, only adding to excessive rainfall totals across those towns and areas along and near that line. All told, some locations picked up nearly 4.5" of rainfall from this deformation band. The band is rare for this time of year, especially in terms of snowfall.

A Flood Warning continues for the Yellow Breeches Creek in the Camp Hill area where the creek is currently running just above flood stage. It is expected to crest around 1 foot over flood stage Monday morning, before falling later in the afternoon.

The main rivers will experience a slow rise over the next couple of days, but should remain within bank-full. The Susquehanna is expected to crest around 13 feet in Harrisburg, below flood stage.

On Monday skies clear and temperatures climb to near 60 degrees. Still, it will continue to be breezy.
