Inland Maine under flash flood watch ahead of Monday's thunderstorms

All of central Maryland is under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch through 8 p.m., and Severe Thunderstorm Warnings have been issued for some areas throughout the day.

Severe storms moving through Baltimore Monday afternoon could bring flash flooding conditions.

The biggest weather concern from these thunderstorms will be torrential downpours, leading to potential flash flooding.

The next chance for thunderstorms will be late Thursday night into Friday, said the weather service.

The first half of Sunday will remain dry, with any showers and storms remaining on the Canadian side of the border, according to a Weather Service forecast discussion posted Saturday night.

Thunderstorms moving eastward through the area began producing heavy rain at about 5 p.m. over State College and Bellefonte, and NWS said doppler radar indicated that the storms were almost stationary. 2 inches of rain have already fallen across the area, with heavy rain still continuing.* Some locations that may experience flooding include.

A chance of showers and thunderstorms continues overnight with a low around 65.

Rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches will be common today, according to the weather service, with localized totals of 3 to 5 inches possible.

Storms will start in the early afternoon in Western Maryland, creeping into western and northern Carroll and Howard counties by late afternoon. Some storms could produce gusty winds and heavy rain. These storms have the potential of damaging winds and of course unsafe lightning. Temperatures will rise into the 80s inland and top off in the upper-70s to near 80 degrees along the Shoreline.
