Severe Storm, Flood Warnings Issued For Parts Of Area

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- Several warnings have been issued for parts of Western Pennsylvania as severe weather moves in.

According to the National Weather Service, a severe thunderstorm warning, flash flood warning and areal flood advisory have been issued for Bedford County, Fulton County and Somerset County.

The severe thunderstorm warning and areal flood advisory were expired by 8 p.m. As of 8 p.m., a flood advisory was the only warning remaining in effect, set to expire at 9:30 p.m.

Just before 7 p.m., a tornado warning was issued for southwestern Bedford County and southeastern Somerset County, it expired at 7:15 p.m.

Meteorologist Kristin Emery says a warm front lifting through our region will trigger numerous showers and thunderstorms through the rest of the evening and into the first half of Sunday. Any of these thunderstorms could produce locally heavy downpours which could cause isolated flash flooding in saturated areas that have already received rainfall this past week.

The severe threat will diminish with sunset and into Sunday morning.
