Remnants from Delta push rainfall into the Baltimore region overnight into Monday

Rainfall will continue Sunday evening as the remnants from storm Delta push toward the Baltimore region and cause heavier rainfall overnight into Monday morning.

According to The National Weather Service, in Maryland, rain is expected to fall between 2-3 inches, and some areas could see up to 4 inches.

“Although the flood threat percentage is not zero, we don’t anticipate much flooding for this event because of the amount time that the rain has to run off without piling onto the soil,” said meteorologist Brian LaSorsa.

Colder temperatures typically harden soil and makes it less capable of absorbing significant rainfall, which results in flooding, he said. However, this year’s lack of rain has caused severe drought conditions across the state.

Delta’s surplus of rain will make for more saturated ground and lessens potential flood threats. Although Maryland’s fall foliage will accompany the wet weather, and the combination of fallen leaves and rain can add to potential flood risks by making roads and sidewalks slick.

According to LaSorsa, the weather will be mostly cloudy and muggy as the rain moves in from the South.

After Delta made landfall in Louisiana, it brought the U.S. hurricane total to 10 for the year.
