The National Weather Service in State College has issued a flash flood watch for Dauphin, Schuylkill, Lebanon and Lancaster counties.

The warning ends 3:30 p.m. and affects south Colorado Springs, Fountain, Stratmoor, Schriever Air Force Base, Fort Carson and the Security-Widefield area. Rainfall rates of up to an inch an hour are possible with the strongest showers and storms.

"Turn around", the weather service said in a report. "The heavy rains will likely trigger rockslides, mudslides and debris flows in steep terrain, especially in and around these areas". "Don't drown when encountering flooded roads".
