Storms are cropping up Wednesday afternoon as the core of a slow-moving low-pressure system passes through Virginia, and more are expected through the end of the week.
A severe thunderstorm warning was briefly issued for parts of western Baltimore city and county about 3:40 p.m., affecting the Woodlawn, Pikesville and Roland Park areas. The storm brought lightning and heavy downpours, with hail ranging from small pellets to penny- and nickel-sized hunks.
Radar images showed storms moving up from the south into the southwest Baltimore suburbs by about 3:30 p.m., with more storms to the south that could move up through the evening.
The storms are remnants of the system that dumped a heavy spring snowfall on the Midwest, according to local meteorologist "Eric the Red".
The weather service's Storm Prediction Center calls for more stormy weather ahead Thursday and Friday. The chances of any storms turning severe are slim, though they increase to around 5-15 percent for Central Maryland on Friday.
