Maryland Weather: A flood watch is in effect for part of Baltimore and nearby counties
BALTIMORE — An unstable weather pattern keeps showers and thunderstorms active daily across the state this weekend.
Around 4 p.m., the National Weather Service issued a thunderstorm warning until 4:45 p.m. for the south-central portion of Carroll County, the northwestern portion of Howard County, northwestern Montgomery County, and the southeastern section of Frederick County.
Also, a flood watch is in effect until midnight for Anne Arundel County, central and southeastern portions of Howard County, central and southeastern portions of Montgomery, north Baltimore, south Baltimore, northwest Howard County, northwest Montgomery County, and Prince George’s County.
The storms sweeping through the state are capable of producing 60 mph winds and dropping hailstones the size of quarters. Tree damage has the potential to damage homes and vehicles, or even close roads, according to the National Weather Service.
Power outages are also possible.
Partly cloudy skies today with highs in the 80s. Showers and thunderstorms are possible late today, especially northwest of Baltimore. Some thunderstorms can produce 0.25-0.50 inches of rain. South winds blow between 4-8 mph. The probability of rain is 20%.
Scattered rain and thunderstorms will continue at night with partly cloudy skies. We can expect temperatures to continue to be in the low 70s with a south/southeast breeze. Areas of patchy fog develop late. The probability of rain is 60%.
Sunday remains unstable due to a frontal boundary and a low pressure area developing nearby. This isn’t great news for the Ravens’ home opener. Make sure to take an umbrella. We can expect mostly cloudy skies with a few showers early in the day and then again during the afternoon/evening. Some thunderstorms may produce heavy rain and isolated flooding. Daytime highs are in the mid 80s. Winds will be southerly, ranging in speed between 5-10 knots per hour. The probability of rain is 70%.
Chances of persistent rain overnight with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s. The probability of rain is 70%.
A little more sun on Monday, but daily rain chances remain with us until mid-week. We also continue to closely monitor Hurricane Lee.
If you could get the clips from 7:32 and 7:38 this morning, I would appreciate it. It should be the first and main ritual at those times.
Thank you very much! Please let me know if you need anything else. I appreciate the help today!
