The National Weather Service has lifted a flood advisory for Pittsburgh after the rivers at the Point did not rise enough to flood the Monongahela Wharf.

A flood warning remained in effect for Armstrong and Clarion counties near the town of Parker on the Allegheny River until 1 p.m. Monday. The weather service said minor ice jam flooding was expected.

As of 5 a.m., the river was at 22.9 feet, nearly 3 feet above flood stage.

At Pittsburgh, the Ohio River at the Point was at 16.6 feet at 8 a.m., more than a foot lower than the level that causes wharf flooding. The wharf was closed Friday and Saturday as a precaution.

After four days of high temperatures of 50 or more, the city was chilling out today, with a chance of rain and snow showers and a forecast high of 40, which is near the normal high for the date.
