Severe Weather To Hit The Chicago Area Monday Afternoon

Muggy, Warm Today, Sun-filled Memorial Day Monday

Few strong storms possible this evening

Things will start to dry out by Wednesday, with only a 10% chance of rain through Friday. These storms are expected to fire up along a dryline that will be positioned somewhere in the vicinity of US-283. Anytime between 5-6 o'clock we will start to see our showers and storms work east across West Michigan giving heavy downpours at times and even stronger thunderstorms for anyone along and south of I-96. An enhanced risk for damaging winds, hail, isolated tornadoes and heavy rain will be possible in a FEW select areas/counties. Partly cloudy, with a low around 71. Wind: S 15-20; gusty.

Tonight storm chances return especially after midnight although this will be scattered in nature not the widespread nature we had last night.

Tuesday brings the next best chance for scattered showers, lowering the pollen count a bit as well as the temperatures.

Wed: High: 74 Partly cloudy.
