A Flash Flood Watch is in place for Harford, Anne Arundel, Cecil, Carroll, Howard, Baltimore, Baltimore City, Kent, Caroline, Queen Anne's, Talbot, Frederick, Washington, Montgomery, Somerset, Wicomico, Charles, Worcester, Dorchester, Calvert, and St Mary's, and Prince Georges counties until early Sunday morning.
A watch means that conditions a favorable for flash flooding especially with 2-4"+ of rain in the forecast for today-Sunday morning.
An area of low pressure to our south continues to surge up the coast as it sucks in Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico moisture. A Bermuda High plus an area of low pressure over the Ohio River Valley continues to funnel this threat in leading our flash flooding concerns.
The low will move fairly fast to the north late tonight with a lull in the activity come Sunday before more rain next week.
The worst of the rain though looks to come in this afternoon with the best chance of flash flooding and gusty winds throughout the evening period Saturday.
Low pressure will move across the region early Sunday giving us great lift with plenty of moisture which looks to gives us the greatest concerns.
Models continue to hint on a solid shield of rain right on through 11pm Saturday before a quick taper as the wind changes on the back side of the low.
The time is now to think about your flooding precautions. If you live in a low lying area remember to seek higher ground when a warning is issued. Never drive through high water since you may not know what is underneath of it or in it. The old saying "Remember Turn Around Don't Drown." A common saying that oh so many do not listen too. Please do not take it for granted since these situations look to change very quickly.
A little dry time Sunday before a week full of rain with daily storm chances each and everyday this week.
