Flash Flood Watch In Effect For Most Of Maryland

Severe-weather warning extended to Broward County

Severe-weather warning extended to Broward County

CT residents can expect heavy rain and stormy weather to continue as the week marches on, according to forecasts from the National Weather Service. Wind will continue to crank up from the southeast at 15-20 miles per hour by the afternoon gusting higher than that at points.

Severe storms posing a threat of flash flooding were moving through the Baltimore area Friday afternoon, and possibly produced a waterspout on the Chesapeake Bay.

That means we have a better chance for rain each of the next few days.

The National Weather Service Peachtree City office has been working with local and county emergency management officials to determine the magnitude of damage in Gilmer county from last weekend. Afternoon temperatures climb to the upper 70s and lower 80s. But as has been the case most of the week, it's not the heat but rather the humidity that makes it rather unbearable outside. The rain chance remains at 70 percent on Wednesday. He predicts a short parting of the storm Thursday afternoon. As much as two to four inches of rain can fall in parts of the area during the next 48 hours. But the chance of rain returns Sunday night, prefacing what's expected to be another wet week. The risk for flash flooding will take place on Wednesday before the weather improves for the weekend.

Egyptian zoo busted painting donkeys to look like zebras
CBS News also notes that zebras and donkeys, despite both bearing a resemblance to horses, are different species. The zoo denied the allegations, with the zoo's director, Mohamed Sultan, insisting the zebras were not fakes.

Surely, showers and thunderstorms will impact outdoor plans through the mid-week period, and may occasionally be disruptive, especially during commute times, but otherwise - barring severe weather - the rain is good news for area lawns and gardens!

Friday's forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of 85 and a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after noon.
