After a warm. muggy day in Chicagoland, rain is starting to make its presence felt, especially in the far west and northwest suburbs and in the far south suburbs and northwest Indiana.
The National Weather Service has issued severe thunderstorm warnings as the bands of heavy weather move through the area, from McHenry, Lake and DeKalb counties, along with Kankakee and Will Counties and northwest Indiana.
Neither of those early larger systems, separated by about 50-60 miles, hit the bulk of the Chicago-area, including the city of Chicago, where only scattered storms were seen until the 9 o'cloxk hour. Here's a look at the radar on ChicagoWeatherCenter.com.
Then a band of heavy rain, with some thunderstorms, moved over Chicago.
More rain is on the way -- and the entire region should at least see something before people start waking up Monday morning. One result of that rain is that the warm weekend temperatures -- Sunday's high, like Saturday's, was in the 90s -- will be gone, with a high in the upper 60s or low 70s. Look for more sun Monday afternoon.
Sun and clouds will mix the rest of the week, with summer-like heat returning on the weekend.
