Flood Watch issued for Nottingham area

National Weather ServiceAt least it’s not snow.

Depending on whether or not you’re a snow lover, this could be good news or bad news.

The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for the Baltimore area as another storm system approaches the area.

Rain is expected to fall from Wednesday evening through Thursday. The heaviest rain is expected overnight and Thursday morning. Total
rainfall amounts of around 1 to 1.5 inches are expected with locally higher amounts. Up to 2 inches possible in some areas.

Excess runoff from a nearly frozen ground and saturated soils will cause the potential for streams and creeks to rise out of their banks as well as potential flooding in low lying urban areas.

A Flood Watch means there is the potential for flooding based on current forecasts. Residents should monitor local forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
