The National Weather Service says the flood watch will be in effect from  3:22 p.m. on December 21 until December 23 at 1:00 a.m.

Rain may accumulate up to two inches tomorrow, which may lead to isolated instances of flooding, especially in urban and poor drainage areas. Some Baltimore County roads may also be inundated with water. 

According to the National Weather Service, "Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers,
creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations."
