Non-severe storms are expected to continue moving ESE across Du Page, southern Kane, La Salle, Kendall, Grundy, and Will counties through midnight. At present, a greater threat of large hail and damaging winds will be associated with the bowing structure moving SSE across Stark, Marshall, and Putnam counties in west central Illinois.
