BALTIMORE (AP) - An unseasonably strong storm system is bringing heavy rain and the threat of severe flooding to the Baltimore area.

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for the city of Baltimore and Baltimore County until 10:30 p.m. Friday. It said in a bulletin just after 6:30 p.m. that up to 3 inches of rain have already fallen, and flash flooding is expected to begin shortly.

Additional rainfall of 2 to 3 inches is possible.

The weather service says residents living along streams and creeks should take immediate precautions.
