Chances for passing rains, some with a few rumbles of thunder, continue into tonight and tomorrow, according to the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center, though the weather has remained dry for most of the area.

One Sun staffer based in Towson said that area awoke to heavy rains and thunder early this morning, but other areas haven't seen any such weather. At BWI Marshall Airport, a hundredth of an inch of rain fell around midnight, but otherwise, it has been dry.

Central Maryland is included in an area with a slight chance of storms producing heavy winds and hail Thursday, according to the storm center. But the region was also included in such a forecast Wednesday though was later removed.

The storm center's maps give the state a 15 percent chance of heavy winds and 5 percent chance of hail. The peeks of sunshine we are getting are causing heating that could fuel rain or storms later. 

As of about 2:30 p.m., radar was clear across the state, with some showers to the west and northwest. BWI reached 80 degrees as of 2 p.m., with plenty of humidity from dew points in the lower 60s.
