Areal Flood Watch in effect for Central and Southeast Montgomery from 10am Friday morning until 6pm Friday evening.
Rainfall amounts around 1 to 2 inches are most likely
with isolated amounts of 2 to 4 inches possible. Heavy amounts of rain will cause creeks and streams to slowly rise, possibly out of their banks, as well as the potential for flooding in urban areas.
It is advised to monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
The National Weather Service is referring to this event as “one of the biggest tidal flood events of the past 10-20 years.”
Harford County Schools, NE of Baltimore City, have announced they’ll be closed on Friday.
While major coastal/tidal flooding will be the main story with this system, Flood Watches & Wind Advisories/Warnings have also been issued in other portions of the area. Check https://t.co/jmfOhAnmF3 for the latest at your location! #MDwx #VAwx #DCwx #WVwx pic.twitter.com/S86PX8hI32
