Baltimore is in a marginal risk category for those storms—with the greatest risk being gusty winds and perhaps some small hail. 

This will likely be a quick-hitter and by 6 p.m. most all the showers will have moved away.

Cooler and drier air will follow on Friday and bring about a pleasant end to the week. 

This coming weekend will feature a few showers late Saturday as yet another cold front crosses the region.
