Overnight storms downed trees in Carroll, Baltimore counties

Though overnight storms weren't as severe as forecasters had feared, they still downed trees and brought large hail to some areas north of Baltimore.

Meteorologists had cautioned of risks of isolated tornadoes across the mid-Atlantic Sunday evening, but those dangers did not materialize. WMAR-TV meteorologist Mike Masco explained that dry air pushing into the region limited severe weather chances over Maryland, while dangerous weather was developing to our north and south.

Some powerful storms nonetheless caused damage across northern Maryland. Trees were downed at Falls and Mount Carmel roads in northern Baltimore County, at Grave Run and Roller roads in Carroll County.

A resident reported 0.88-inch-thick hail near Hampstead.
