National Weather Service has issued a series of warnings over the last 24 hours advising caution due to the potential for severe storms that may hit much of northern Illinois throughout today and tomorrow.
Despite initial uncertainty about the likelihood of storms forming seems to have increased and the National Weather Service is predicting that if they do form they may “have the potential to produce destructive hail and tornadoes, some of which could cause extensive damage.”
Though it doesn’t look like Chicago will be in the eye of the storm, the city and surrounding areas can expect wind and rain for much of today followed by thunder as the evening approaches.
Temperatures are expected to climb back up from Thursday through to the weekend with Saturday looking more like reasonable spring weather with highs in the 60s.
As ever, you can head to the National Weather Service website for all the latest weather forecasts and warnings. Stay safe out there!
