According to Allegheny County, flash flooding has made Valley Drive at Library Road, Route 88, impassable in Bethel Park. Some drivers ignored the warnings and drove through the water anyways. Flood warnings for both rivers are in effect until further notice, the weather service said. That watch, issued just before 10:40 a.m. Monday, lasts from Tuesday afternoon to Friday morning. Monitor the forecast, especially if you live in a location that is prone to flooding. Expect winds to be about 14 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 24 miles per hour before 10 p.m.

Isolated severe thunderstorms are possible Tuesday afternoon and evening.
