Risk of severe thunderstorms this afternoon/evening across Chicago area

FORECAST | Rounds of Rain

These storms are also putting down a lot of rain and may cause additional flooding issues. We are back in the upper 60s and lower 70s to kick off the work week.

There could be an isolated rain shower Monday night ahead of an approaching cold front from the storm system which will move in on Tuesday. Slight shower chance late. High temperatures will be fickle today; the seasonably cool lower 70s farther north with much warmer air farther south thanks to that warm front. It will be breezy, too, with winds of 10 to 15 miles per hour and gusts as high as 30 miles per hour. Tonight, we will have a similar set up with cool temperatures working back into the lower 50s with mostly clear skies and light winds.

The National Storm Prediction Center has outlooked the Chicago area for a Slight Risk of potentially severe storms later this Tuesday afternoon and evening that also includes southern Wisconsin, eastern Iowa, much of IL and IN as well as southern lower MI and northwestern OH (see yellow-shaded area on the highlighted map).




WEDNESDAY | Rain and storm chances mainly early.

Mixed but dry skies are in the forecast for Thursday with a high of 19 C and low of 9 C.

The weekend is expected to be sunny, too, with highs in the upper 60s.
