CHICAGO - Tornado warnings were issued for a dozen cities and towns in the Chicago area, including Manteno, Peotone, Bourbonnais, and Bradley on Saturday.
Forecasters say residents still need to "remain vigilant" through the evening with a tornado watch in effect until 7 p.m., as "the ingredients are there for potential severe storms, including rotating ones with a tornado threat."
Additional storm cells have been tracked across the area, bringing with them severe thunderstorms, the weather service said.
The weather service also issued a flash flood watch that will remain in effect until 6:15 p.m. Showers and thunderstorms are expected for the next 24 hours, the weather service said, especially along and southeast of Interstate 55.
The severe weather comes days after a tornado ripped through a few suburbs west of the city.
