The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for Frederick, Carroll, Howard and Montgomery Counties in Maryland, from late Sunday night through Tuesday morning. Officials say Hurricane Sandy could make landfall late Monday and forecasters say the storm could produce three to five inches of rainfall in the I-95 metropolitan corridor. Some areas could see higher amounts which could create the potential for flooding.
Meanwhile, a hazardous weather outlook has been issued for the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. Weather officials say there is the potential for accumulating snow Tuesday through Wednesday at elevations above 1500 feet in western Maryland, the Potomac Highlands of eastern West Virginia, and the northern Shenandoah Valley.
