Sum­mer-style storms drop hail

The Washington Post Sunday - - LOCAL OPINIONS - BY MARTIN WEIL martin.weil@wash­post.com

As light­ning bolts crack­led from the skies, in­tense thun­der­storms swept across parts of the Wash­ing­ton re­gion Satur­day night, adding to the sug­ges­tion of sum­mer­time cre­ated by the day’s 90-de­gree high tem­per­a­tures.

As it swept to the south­east, to­ward An­napo­lis and the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay, the storm front seemed to stretch along a line from be­low Wash­ing­ton to above Bal­ti­more.

“It looked like a tor­nado,” a woman in Bal­ti­more said on Twit­ter. Trees top­pled in some spots and hail clat­tered on pave­ments.
