Md. under a severe thunderstorm watch

Tuesday could see a repeat of damaging afternoon and evening storms that factored into at least one death on Monday, according to the National Weather Service. A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for a large part of the state until 9 p.m. 

Around 3 p.m., Anne Arundel was under a tornado warning that expired.

Heavy thunderstorms bringing downpours and damaging winds are expected mainly after noon and continuing into overnight, with more than an inch of rainfall and flash flooding possible. The high will reach near 90 degrees and the low around 71.

Howard, Arundel, Harford, Baltimore and Carroll are under a flash flood watch until 10 p.m.

The weather service said rotational winds were reported in Harford County on Monday, though there was no touchdown. A tornado warning was issued in Baltimore County on Monday. The violent weather is believed to be a factor in the death of Brigette Marchand, of Annapolis, who was found dead in the water in Anne Arundel County after she had gone boating. A 40-year-old Pasadena man who had accompanied her is missing.

After the storms pass, things are expected to clear out and become cooler later in the week, with sunny skies and highs in the low to mid-80s through the weekend. There will be a small chance of afternoon or evening showers on Thursday through Sunday.
