Storm Expected to Produce Heavy Rain

Widespread rainfall of up to 2 to 3 inches is expected during the storm, according to the National Weather Service.

The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch in effect for Ocean City from 1 p.m. Sunday through 4 p.m. Monday.

A widespread storm system is expected to cross the region on Sunday and Monday. Rainfall amounts of 2 to 3 inches are expected with localized amounts possibly greater. These totals may result in significant street flooding.

No coastal (tidal) flood advisories have been issued, but residents are asked to closely monitor the forecast and weather conditions. Please don’t be caught off-guard.

Heavy rain flooding can impact parts of the island that don’t typically experience tidal flooding, and flooding conditions can develop quickly.

Be prepared to move vehicles. The roads closer to the beach including Central and Wesley avenues are at higher elevation. Parking at all municipal lots is free.

Parking also will be available at the Trinity United Methodist Church at 20 North Shore Road in Marmora (please read letter from Trinity if you take advantage of this service).
