BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A warm front crossed the Maryland area on Wednesday with a few splashes and very light sleet — and worse weather is on the way.

These weather conditions were scattered across the Maryland-Pennsylvania border.

The warm front has continued to move north and northeast away from the area.

Temperatures started in the low to mid 30’s and climbed into the mid 50’s by the afternoon.

You’ll stay in your upper 40’s overnight and a fresh south wind will accompany you.

It will be different on Thursday.

The WJZ declared Thursday an alarm day due to the risk of strong to severe thunderstorms in the state until the afternoon or evening.

Any storm that develops has the potential to generate damaging wind gusts in excess of 50 miles per hour.

There may be some hail and even a very isolated tornado risk.

Current models suggest the strongest storms could occur in far south Maryland and the lower East Coast.

But these models could change overnight.

As such, there is a low risk of severe storms across the state on Thursday.

WJZ will monitor the weather threat throughout the day.
