    Strong storms from the north moved through the D.C. area Saturday evening bringing periods of heavy rain, hail, strong winds and a lot of lightning.

    All severe thunderstorm warnings for the area have been canceled or expired, as has a tornado watch that covered parts of Maryland, including Anne Arundel County.

    A severe thunderstorm watch is now only in effect Calvert, Charles and St. Mary's counties in southern Maryland until 11 p.m.

    Storm Team4 declared a Weather Alert for the evening until 10 p.m.

    The storms produced gusts exceeding 60 mph and quarter-to-golf-ball-size hail in places.

    Mother's Day will be cloudy with a chance for scattered showers and possibly isolated thunderstorms.

    Sunday's temperatures will be interesting with areas north of D.C. in the 60s and 70s; D.C. could end up in the 70s, possibly close to 80; and highs south of the District will be in the low 80s.
