CHICAGO (CBS)– Severe weather is approaching the Chicago area.
There is an enhanced risk of severe weather as more storms develop in the early afternoon and evening, with the worst storms most likely around sunset. However, the severe threat is expected to begin in the late afternoon, and these storms be responsible for an isolated tornado or wind damage. Northern areas are at an enhanced risk and southern areas are at a marginal risk for severe weather.
Heavy rain could lead to flooding later in the evening and strong winds (up to 60 mph) remain the main threat. Isolated tornados are possible as storms develop.
Scattered storms are possible again on Saturday.
Temperatures will be staying in the upper 80s throughout the weekend and next week.
