The National Weather Service in Pittsburgh has issued a flash flood watch until 2 p.m. today.

The watch is in effect for Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Lawrence, Mercer and Venango counties, stretching north to Erie. Other areas include central Ohio and the West Virginia panhandle.

Heavy rain showers and thunderstorms are expected in those areas, mainly between noon and 5 p.m., according to the Weather Service. The forecast for the Pittsburgh region calls for a 70 percent chance of precipitation with a high near 80.

A flash flood watch means the potential exists for flooding to develop, including rapid rises in creeks and streams.
