Widely scattered shower and thunderstorms hit the Chicago area Sunday morning but were expected to subside by early afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.
Storm activity will move to the south and west suburbs of Chicago said Brett Borchardt, a meteorologist with the weather service. The thunderstorms will move into Joilet, Tinley Park, and Valparaiso, Borchardt added.
“The south of the city will see the highest level of activity,” he said. “Chicago will remain mainly dry for the rest of the day. There’s been some scattered showers and storms here so far which will be mostly all we’ll see.”
Those suburbs could see heavy rains, frequent lightning, and gusty winds, he said. Showers are expected to return by mid-week. Cloud coverage from the passing storms will impact the temperature and drop humidity levels, Borchardt said. Temperatures are expected to remain in the mid-80s throughout the day.
“The afternoon humidity level will drop and make everything feel more comfortable,” Borchardt said.
