FORECAST DISCUSSION
A few showers & rumbles of thunder are possible overnight -- moving into our area from West Virginia. Best chance is in western Maryland and our West Virginia counties.

A greater storm threat kicks in Monday -- and heavy rainfall and the potential for flooding will especially be a threat. Monday starts with isolated showers in the morning, but numerous storms will track through the area during the afternoon and evening. 

Storms will bring repeated rounds of heavy rain that could lead to flooding. A few storms could be strong or severe with damaging winds & hail. The Storm Prediction Center has placed a large part of our area in a 'slight' risk of severe weather. Critical timing is 2 p.m. to midnight.
