Radar indicates that stronger, potentially severe thunderstorms continue to move rapidly north-northeast, staying to the west and north of the Chicago area. However, satellite imagery shows weaker activity beginning to form over central Illinois. These showers and t-storms may reach the west and southwest suburbs by 5 PM.

Stronger storm development to our northwest has prompted the issuance of a new tornado watch area that abuts the IL/WI state line.


County outline of tornado watch # 233, in effect until 11 PM CDT.
