October 30, 2012|By Ian Duncan, The Baltimore Sun

The National Weather Service issued coastal flood warnings for many parts of Maryland until 8 a.m. Wednesday.

The affected areas are southern Baltimore County and Harford, Anne Arundel, Calvert, Charles and St. Mary's counties.

Baltimore and Harford Counties should expect high tide levels 2 feet above normal. The other areas are expected to see levels 1 to 2 feet higher than usual.

The tides will likely bring inundation of shoreline areas and large waves at high tide could make flooding worse, according to the weather service.
