BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A tornado watch covering much of Maryland Monday afternoon has expired after a cold front brought heavy rain and storms to the region.
The line of storms prompted a number of tornado warnings in Caroline, Cecil, Harford and Queen Anne’s counties; all of those tornado warnings have been canceled.
The Six Flags America COVID-19 testing site closed early due to the tornado watch.
Heavy rain also led to flooding in parts of the state.
Some roads in parts of the state were covered by high water, including Maryland Route 7 between Creswell Avenue and Howard Street in North East. Flooding led to multiple closed roads in Harford County as well.

The National Weather Service said earlier Monday water nearly covered the promenade at the dragon boat dock in the Inner Harbor and flooding could occur at the end of Thames Street in Baltimore.
Several water rescues were already underway earlier Monday afternoon. Just after noon, Baltimore City Fire was called to North Point Road and Erdman Ave.
According to the National Weather Service, Baltimore saw 2.74 inches of rain at BWI-Marshall Airport Monday, breaking the old daily record for November 30 set in 1967.
Once the storm moves through, cooler temperatures will arrive. In fact, Garrett County is set to be under a winter storm warning beginning at 1 a.m. Tuesday until 7 a.m. Wednesday.
Western Maryland could see snow accumulations of between four and eight inches, with isolated amounts as high as 10 inches in the western part of the county.
