    * Until 8 PM EDT this evening
    * Periods of rain will continue across the region through this
    afternoon, and possibly into this evening. Additional rain on an
    already saturated ground will cause excessive runoff. Additional
    rainfall amounts up to half inch are most likely across the
    area, with the highest amounts east of the Blue Ridge and
    Catoctin Mountains. While flash flooding cannot be ruled out,
    the primary concern is flooding of small streams and low- lying
    areas. Saturated ground may cause trees to become uprooted and
    toppled.
