WEATHER Flash flood watch in effect through Saturday morning

A flash flood watch is in effect through 11 p.m. along the Interstate 95 corridor, including in Baltimore, southern Baltimore County, and Howard and Anne Arundel counties. Clouds look to hang tough as well, keeping temperatures in the upper-60s and low-70s this afternoon. Remnants of Gordon along the front just to the south is continues to make its way into our area.

Some parts of Eagle Country could see three to five inches of rain by the end of the storms on Sunday. Most of the rain will fall on Saturday with the heaviest Saturday evening.

An additional 1 to 3 inches of rainfall is possible through Sunday night.

However, that could change between now and Sunday night, with the Environment Canada adding there remains "considerable uncertainty" in the timing and track of the storm.

Showers may linger into early Sunday followed by dry weather to start next week.

The weather in Hamilton will also get cooler this weekend.

In addition to widespread heavier rainfall locally, excessive rain to our north has resulted in higher river levels. While mostly minor flooding is expected along the MS, from Winfield north, moderate flooding can be expected.

Rivers are rising, too.
