Hagerstown not part of flash-flood watch

September 22, 2011

Weather forecasters Thursday night warned of heavy rain along the Interstate 95 corridor and eastward in Maryland and Virginia, a spokesman for the National Weather Service said.

That means Hagerstown is not part of a flash-flood watch, but nearby areas like Frederick County, Md., and Loudoun County, Va., are in the affected area, said Matthew Kramar, a weather service meteorologist in Sterling, Va.

But there is still a chance that the pattern of the heaviest rain could change, Kramar said. Frederick was expected to be on the "westerly fringe" of the heaviest precipitation, Kramar said.

There was a 90 percent chance of rain for Hagerstown today,  with between a quarter to half an inch possible, the forecast said. An 80 percent chance of rain was forecasted for tonight, with a possible quarter to a half inch of rain possible.
