Severe Line Of Storms Brings Hail To Maryland

UPDATE AT 8:15pm: The storms have significantly weakened and the severe weather threat for tonight has ended.

The storms are moving in from the west, this evening, some of which will be capable of damaging winds and isolated tornadoes. Warm, moist unstable air will be in place Wednesday ahead of a cold front that will sweep through during the back-half of the day.

As of 5:50 this afternoon, BGE reported that fewer than 300 customers were without power following the storms. The rain will taper off from west to east, with temperatures rising into the 60s. Scattered showers and storms will be possible on Tuesday and a strong storm can't be ruled out.

We'll have a slight risk for severe storms. News 12 meteorologists say torrential rains, lightning, hail and strong winds are possible as the fast-moving storms pass through.

We'll likely deal with 3 days of wet weather to kickoff the workweek, with Wednesday being the most active of the three. As the associated warm front moves in, expect temperatures south of Grand Rapids to soar near 70 degrees in some locations. The weekend looks dry for the most part, with lots of sunshine on Saturday and ample sunshine on Sunday.
