Severe thunderstorms popped up Friday afternoon along the Appalachians of Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia.

A severe thunderstorm watch was in effect across Western Maryland and into Frederick County until 10 p.m.

Allegany, Washington and Frederick counties were also under a flash flood watch through midnight. Quick downpours could drop an inch of rain, or possibly even a few inches, causing rapid flooding of streams and urban areas.

Some storms could “edge closer” to the Baltimore and Washington regions, weather service meteorologist Ray Martin said.

Could climate change threaten spring festival season? Some Baltimore County organizers are concerned.

Shaken from a rainy 2018, outdoor festival organizers in Baltimore County say rainier weather brought by climate change poses real financial risks.

In the Baltimore region, chances for storms, or otherwise rain, are forecast into Saturday. Scattered showers and storms are possible during the day, with rain becoming more likely in the evening and into Sunday.

An inch or more of rain is expected in the Baltimore region from Friday through Sunday, with higher amounts expected to the west.

Sunshine is forecast Monday and for the early part of next week.

Mild temperatures in the 60s and 70s are forecast throughout the weekend and into next week.
