NOTTINGHAM, MD—The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for the Baltimore metro area.
The watch will be in effect through 10 p.m. on Monday.
Forecasters say numerous showers and thunderstorms are likely on Monday afternoon and evening, some of which may produce a few inches of rain in a short period of time.
Heavy rainfall in a short period of time could result in rapid rises of water in small streams and creeks, and in urban and poor drainage areas.
Residents should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
A Flash Flood Watch is also in effect for Wednesday into Thursday as the remnants of Hurricane Ida pass through Maryland.
