A band of strong thunderstorms with the potential for heavy rain and small hail was moving toward the Baltimore region Wednesday evening but fizzled before reaching the area.

A special weather statement alerted Washington and Frederick counties of the storm about 5:40 p.m. A severe thunderstorm warning was issued for parts of southern Frederick and Washington counties as of about 6:10 p.m.

Radar images show the storms fading as they moved into Maryland. But the risk of storms overnight remained.

Most of Maryland was under a hazardous weather outlook Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service. The outlook warned of potentially severe scattered storms, capable of producing heavy rains, thunder, lightning and hail.
