Rain and thunder will slide southeast out of Chicagoland overnight and bring the SLIGHT RISK of severe storms to the FOX19 NOW viewing area. The main risk is from 11PM until 3AM. By dawn a few showers will be in the area but thy will be light and non-severe.The threat of severe storms does not stop there though. The Storm Prediction Center says there is a SLIGHT TO ENHANCED RISK of severe thunderstorms Saturday afternoon and evening and a SLIGHT RISK Sunday.
The main threat tonight is straight line winds, Saturday hail and damaging winds are possible along with a tornado threat and Sunday will be about the same as Saturday.
I am watching it and will have more at 6:30PM on FOX19 NOW.
