Strong thunderstorms, hail moving toward some NW and N suburbs

10:02AM: One inch, or quarter sized hail was reported at the Rockford Airport at 9:58.  There is a report of some broken glass from hail just south of Rockford.  If you live in McHenry, Lake or far northern Cook County, it’s time to put the car in the garage (if that’s an option).
