Stay Alert: When Severe Weather Will Be Most Likely Monday
Stormy weather is threatening to bring large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes to the Chicago area late Monday afternoon and evening.
Though some showers are possible during the early afternoon hours, the biggest threat for severe weather begins around 5 p.m., according to NBC 5 Storm Team meteorologists.
That is when storms are expected to grow more numerous – and could potentially become severe. Just how severe the storms become, however, depends on a warm front setting up across the area.
Though the threat for severe storms exists across the Chicago area through about 11 p.m., locations along and south of Interstate 80 are favored for more severe activity.
Any storms that do develop are expected to push east through northwest Indiana during the late evening hours, fading after midnight.
Tuesday looks to remain dry for most, though a chance for a few isolated showers or storms returns for the afternoon once again.
