A potent cold front will slide into Maryland as many head to the polls on Tuesday. 

A line of storms arrive late morning through the afternoon. 

The Storm Prediction Center has Maryland split. The areas in yellow have the higher risk of seeing severe storms. While areas in green have a more marginal risk. Damaging winds will be the primary concern. However, an isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out. 

Flooding also remains a concern. The ground is very saturated after picking up over an inch of rain on Monday. Fallen leaves can also prove problematic this time of year, clogging drains and making for slick conditions. 

Rain totals for the year continue to pile up. By Monday afternoon, BWI has already collected 59.07" of rain for the year, making it the third wettest year on record.
