West Virginia and Maryland also had several countries under the watch.

The watch was issued Wednesday morning as part of a series of weather alerts including a severe weather warning and a flash flood warning/watch issued across the state.

No end times were provided on the additional watches and warnings.

Widespread heavy rain of 1 to 3 inches, with localized amounts possibly exceeding 5 inches, is expected from the remnants of Tropical Storm Fred.

Rapid runoff from the heavy rain will lead to poor drainage flooding and fast rises on area streams and creeks. Widespread river flooding is not expected at this time. However, some smaller creeks could exceed their banks.

NWS recommends the public monitor forecasts and seek higher ground if flash floods occur.
