BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Despite the threat of severe weather, central Maryland has been largely spared by strong storms, heavy rain or hail.

Some locations in Virginia and Ohio however were hit hard by severe weather with numerous wind damage and hail reports. Some slightly cooler and more stable air over much of Maryland helped to put a stop to the development of such storms.

Storms near Harrisburg Thursday evening are moving southeast and may clip Northeast Maryland after 11:30 p.m. After that, the threat of showers lessens, and a very warm to hot Friday, with an increasing breeze, will make for a mainly sunny day.

Highs Friday could reach 94 degrees, but much drier and very comfortable air will begin to move in by later afternoon Friday and will stick around for the following three days.
