  • Flood Warning In Effect For Huron River In Hamburg

The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for this area until 11 p.m. tonight.

The NWS calls the conditions "a recipe for heavy rain potential...which is starting to look like more a matter of when and how much, rather than if".

Forecasters say rainfall could total up to one inch in areas of central Allegheny County, including parts of Interstate 79 and the Parkway North.

A flood watch is in effect for Arlington, Fairfax and Loudoun counties and the city of Alexandria from Thursday afternoon through Friday evening.

Showers and possibly a thunderstorm are expected after 2 p.m. Wednesday and again beginning Thursday afternoon. The river reached 15.9 feet Monday morning.

Several roads around Frederick County, Maryland, are underwater Tuesday night after flash floods inundated the area.

Minor flooding is occurring on the Similkameen River near Nighthawk, and major flooding is forecast for later in the week.

At 10 a.m., the river was measuring at 10.65 feet at the New Munster gauge.
