Forecasters cautioned of possible flash flooding and coastal flooding Tuesday and Wednesday, with a stretch of rainy weather setting in by late Monday. The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for nearly all of Maryland west of the Chesapeake Bay, effective from Tuesday evening through late Wednesday night. The storm could bring a total of 3-5 inches, with potentially heavier amounts in some localized areas. A coastal flood watch was meanwhile in effect along the western shore of the Bay, from Harford County down to St. Mary's County, with tides as much as 2 feet above normal.

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.

Flooding is most likely during high tide in Baltimore's Inner Harbor and Fort McHenry about 7:36 a.m., and at Bowley Bar in Middle River about 8:28 a.m., the weather service said. An advisory of possible flooding was also given for the U.S. Naval Academy and along the shores of Chesapeake Beach, where high tide was earlier in the morning.

Water sloshed out of the Annapolis Harbor before dawn Tuesday, flooding the immediate City Dock area with a foot of water by 6 a.m. But city officials estimated that high tide could crest at 4.8 feet and stay high past 4 p.m. By 4 a.m., crews reported flooding there had begun. City officials were warning people to stay away from the City Dock, as well as other waterfront areas that could be submerged because of the wind-whipped high tide. "City crews are watching the high tide closely," said city spokeswoman Rhonda Wardlaw.

Gov. Martin O'Malley declared a state of emergency as the rain intensified, and the National Weather Service added a flash flood warning for the evening on top of the earlier coastal and flood warnings for the area.

With the full moon coming Saturday, wildlife watchers can catch a glimpse of nature at work along the Atlantic shoreline of Maryland and Delaware, as the horseshoe crab comes ashore with an age-old purpose.At the full moon of May and June each year, the horseshoe crab ride the high tides onto the beaches to lay and fertilize their eggs, and when the eggs have been laid, numbers of migratory shorebirds congregate to feed.The birds are on their way from South America, where they have spent the winter, to the Arctic, where they will summer and breed.

The Army Corps of Engineers expects to lift navigational restrictions on the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal this week after emergency dredging removed shoaling that emerged in November. At 14 miles long and 450 feet wide, the canal is a major artery for the port of Baltimore, carrying more than 40 percent of the port's shipping traffic: roll-on, roll-off cargo, cars, fuel and coal. So when an approach to the canal becomes clogged with muck that threatens to imperil as many as 50 ships that regularly make deliveries to Baltimore — as happened to the access from the Chesapeake Bay — the folks who maintain the canal will make the earth move to restore circulation.

SAN FRANCISCO -- In a spectacular rescue of Humphrey the whale, dozens of volunteers and members of the Coast Guard towed the lethargic humpback from the muddy tidal flat where he was stuck overnight and herded him out into San Francisco Bay yesterday.By nightfall, the Coast Guard reported that the whale was last sighted north of San Francisco and that he was swimming on a course that could take him under the Golden Gate Bridge and back into the ocean.An estimated 4,000 cheering onlookers lined the shore at high tide in the afternoon to watch as rescuers slipped a harness over the errant whale's head and as a Coast Guard boat pulled him backward into deeper water.
