Some locally heavy downpours are possible this morning, then storms could reach severe levels this afternoon. If you have outdoor plans, you may need to move inside. More rain and storms are expected to redevelop by the weekend.

Wed: High: 79 Partly cloudy, turning mostly cloudy. A cold front will be slowly dropping south across the area this evening and into the overnight, and that front will eventually be the focus for more storms.


The rain will leave us with a cool start for Tuesday. Storms may bring winds up to 70 miles per hour and half-dollar sized hail to the Chicago area. A few storms may be strong; however, the bulk of the strong to severe storms will stay south due to more favorable dynamics with warmer air and higher moisture content in central Iowa and westward. During the mid to late afternoon a few storms will be possible on Monday.

Showers and storms around Thursday with highs in the upper 70s.


High-temperature records were broken or tied across the eastern portion of the country on Sunday and Saturday.

Severe weather is not expected with these storms.


Storms will come to an end Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning leaving Wednesday dry with a mix of sun and clouds (model uncertainty on extent of cloud cover).
