Worcester... Maryland beaches... Somerset and Wicomico. In
Virginia... eastern Essex... eastern King William... eastern King
And Queen... Lancaster... Middlesex... New Kent...

* Through late tonight

* locally heavy rainfall from showers and thunderstorms will
persist across the region through tonight. Additional rainfall

to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

should flash flood warnings be issued.
