NOTTINGHAM, MD—A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for the Baltimore area for Monday afternoon and evening.  The Flood Watch will be in effect until 9 p.m.

Thunderstorms will develop on Monday and continue into the evening hours along the I-95 corridor.  Some areas may experience multiple thunderstorms through Monday evening.

The National Weather Service says rainfall amounts of 1-2 inches are possible, with some isolated amounts over 3 inches possible. This amount of rain over urban areas may lead to instances of flash flooding, as well as a potential for creeks and streams to rise rapidly if some of the higher amounts are realized.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

Residents should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.

Highs on Monday will reach the mid-90s in most areas, with plenty of humidity.
