Maryland Weather: Today's An Alert Day Due To The Rain Threat

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- The First Alert Weather Team has declared Monday an Alert Day due to soaking rain. 

The storm will spread across Maryland through the morning and bring wet weather for the afternoon, evening commute before pulling away around midnight.

Tonight we'll see rain mainly before 2 a.m. with a low around 38 degrees. Winds could gust up to 32 miles per hour.

Plan for wet roads as you run afternoon errands and make the commute home from work. 

Most places will pick up between 0.75-1.0" but we're not expecting flooding to be a factor due to the abnormally dry conditions. 

In addition to the rain, wind will be a factor this evening and tonight.

A cold front will clear the area, causing winds to shift north and northwesterly, with gusts up to 30 miles per hour.

The abundant clouds and rain will hold temperatures in the Baltimore area in the upper 40s, but freezing temperatures in western Maryland mean winter weather instead of wet weather. 

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect through 8 p.m. for Garrett and far western Allegany counties. Three to six inches of snow and up to a 1/10'' of ice is expected, with winds gusting up to 35 miles per hour.

By Tuesday we're out of the 40s and into the mid 50s under mostly sunny skies. It will be rather breezy though so plan for it to feel more like the upper 40s.

More sunshine is in store for Wednesday with highs near 60°.
