Severe storms possible for Chicago on Thursday

Showers and storms are possible at any time on Thursday across Chicago, and some could be severe, especially in the late afternoon into early evening.

Much of the intensity of the later activity will hinge on the morning and any midday storms. The first round already moved in and Chicagoans need to be ready in case any warnings are issued.

Tornado warnings during the morning were not likely. Highs warm into the 70s and if the atmosphere can recover from the morning action, the storms in the afternoon could be intense with all storm hazards possible.


Storms will end around 10 p.m., and even sooner for those in the west.

Friday will be partly cloudy with highs in the 60s.

Saturday looks quite chilly. Highs in the upper 40s. There might be a rain or snow shower, but no biggie.
