The National Weather Service has issued the following alert.
Shocking news, there are thunderstorms in Friday's forecast. But there's more. The National Weather Service has also issued a flash flood watch for parts of Maryland, including Anne Arundel County. According to its weather statement, some storms could dump more than two inches of rain per hour.

Temperatures will be relatively mild, whith highs expected in the low-to-mid 80s during the day, dropping to the mid-60s at night, when there's an 80 percent chance that rain will continue.

A maelstrom of heavy winds and sideways rain tore through Anne Arundel County and was over as quickly as it began.
A torrential downpour covered the Glen Burnie area Tuesday afternoon, creating a slip-and-slide situation just in time for workers to get to their cars for their evening commute. Northwestern Anne Arundel County received a warning around 4:30 p.m. of possible 35- to 60-mph winds, and the Severn area received its share of the unruly weather front. But, as quickly as it came, the storm was over, the sun was shining and residents were left with a rather wet and puzzled "what the heck just happened?" type of feeling.
