Another round of showers expected tonight

CHICAGO — More rain and thunderstorms are on the way Thursday afternoon and evening.

Though lower than yesterday or last night, severe weather chances are not out of the question. The Storm Prediction Center places thunderstorm chances 15 percent later today — but at nearly 70 percent tonight with a 10 to 15 percent chance of severe storms. Doesn’t sound like much — but that’s not a value we totally dismiss, Tom Skilling says.

Damaging winds and large hail along with flood-producing downpours look to be the main threats with these storms.
