Baltimore, MD – Dec. 8, 2023  - A strengthening storm system is set to hit Maryland over the weekend, bringing waves of steady rain and gusty winds on Sunday afternoon and evening, according to Pikesville Patch. While there may be flooding in poor drainage areas due to Sunday evening's heavy rain, moderate to severe drought conditions in parts of Maryland could help absorb some of it. The heaviest rain and strong winds are expected on Sunday evening and night, potentially causing disruptions. Along the East Coast, high winds could lead to powerful gusts and travel delays. Before the storm, Marylanders can expect mild and tranquil days on Friday and Shabbos, with the storm bringing downpours and possible thunder on Sunday. Drier and colder temperatures will follow on Monday and through the week.
