The warning is in effect until 5:15 p.m. for Baltimore, Anne Arundel and Howard counties.
At 4:22 p.m., Doppler radar indicated a severe storm capable of producing damaging winds in excess of 60 mph near Columbia.
The storm should move along quickly, according to News4 Chief Meteorologist Doug Kammerer. He said that there is not a lot of lightning with this storm, but it could be dangerous and people in its path should take cover.
