Heavy rain, urban flooding in MA weekend forecast

Flood warnings issued for parts of the carolinas

Additional scattered thunderstorms were expected Monday afternoon into the evening across the entire county, according to an alert from the service.

The weather service, quoting Frederick emergency management, said widespread flash flooding had already occurred in and near Frederick.

Heavy downpour and urban flooding are possible this weekend in MA, according to the National Weather Service longterm forecast.

After storms earlier in the week, heavy rain forecasted for the region on Wednesday afternoon poses a risk of isolated flooding.

A Flood Warning has been issued for Sweetwater Creek near Austell, affecting Cobb and Douglas counties until 9 p.m. Wednesday.

The Rock River at Newville is now at "pre-flooding" stage.

At that stage, water begins to flood the yards of homes, as well as submerge boat docks, along the Huron River and Ore Lake.

Ponding of water is possible in low lying areas like ditches, culverts and fields. Expect winds to be about 14 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 24 miles per hour before 10 p.m. Flood stage is 11 feet.
