Severe storms possible Wednesday, but warmer temperatures could arrive by holiday weekend – NBC Chicago

Things are expected to be mostly dry on Tuesday, with cool temperatures still in place, but parts of the southern suburbs could potentially see scattered showers and thunderstorms Wednesday night, forecast models predict.

Wednesday will likely be the main event in terms of storms, with parts of NBC viewing area 5 currently at “marginal” risk of severe weather, according to the Storm Prediction Center.

That includes parts of Cook, Will and Kankakee counties in Illinois, as well as nearly all of Indiana, officials said.

The main threats from the storms would be heavy rain, hail and gusty winds.

On Thursday, rain will likely continue across the region, but after this system subsides, a warmer and drier pattern is expected to set in over the region by the holiday weekend.

Saturday should see highs rising into the 70s across most of the region, then Sunday could see highs rising into the 80s where they will remain for several days.

More importantly, things will likely remain dry for all manner of Memorial Day ceremonies and get-togethers.
