A line of severe thunderstorms moved through Maryland Saturday afternoon, bringing hail and strong wind.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch was issued for much of the WBAL listening  area until 8 p.m., but that was cleared in some areas as the storm moved east.

Around 2 p.m., the thunderstorms began moving through central Maryland. There were several reports of extensive hail throughout the area.

Carroll County was getting hit hard around 2:30 p.m. with heavy rain, strong winds and hail. WBAL-TV 11 Weather meteorologist Miri Marshall said radar was showing signs of rotation in the storm in the Hampstead area around 2:50 p.m.

Around 3 p.m., the National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for south central Anne Arundel, Northwestern Calvert, Southeastern Prince George's, Northeastern Charles counties until 3:30 p.m. That warning was canceled as the tornado threat diminished; however, large hail and damaging winds remain likely and a Severe Thunderstorm Warning remains in effect for the area, the weather service said.

WBAL-TV 11 received several reports and photos of hail ranging from the size of dimes to quarters from throughout the viewing area.

As of 5:50 this afternoon, BGE reported that fewer than 300 customers were without power following the storms.

After the storm, a nubmer of WBAL listeners and viewer sent pictures of rainbows.
