"A slow-moving cold front will usher in heavy rain and thunderstorms late this afternoon and evening statewide", states the alert. That being said, even a non-severe thunderstorm can have unsafe lightning and heavy downpours.

Rainfall of up to 2 inches is expected in northern ME from Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning.

Today's severe thunderstorm watch comes on top of an earlier flash flood warning for most of upstate NY.

Thunderstorms are forecast for Monday afternoon in Baltimore, with the possibility of heavy rain and damaging winds, the National Weather Service said.

Urban areas and areas with steep terrain will be most vulnerable to flash flooding, according to the Weather Service. We will see clearing skies Monday night into Tuesday.

The area is in a flash flood watch through midnight. One to two inches of rain are expected, with localized areas of 2 to 4 inches. Atmosphere conditions have to be "just right" for a thunderstorm to spawn a tornado, and Monday's severe weather parameters will be close.

The main threat in Lancaster County is between 1:30 and 5 p.m., according to Eric Horst, director of Millersville University's Weather Information Center.

A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for low-lying and flood-prone areas of St Elizabeth, St James, Hanover and Westmoreland. "Keep that in mind on Monday afternoon". The high temperature will be near 80. Weather officials say many flood-prone roads in the county are likely to be impassable Sunday morning.
