At 9:12 p.m. Sunday, water nearly covered the promenade at the Inner Harbor’s Dragon Boat Pier and inundated the end of Thames Street at Fells Point. The Baltimore area had received just over an inch of rain as of 8 p.m. Sunday.

More flooding is possible for the region Monday afternoon and evening, with heavy rain forecast.

Thunderstorms expected Monday could bring the risk of a tornado or damaging winds, the NWS warned Sunday.
