CHICAGO (CBS) — Good morning. We’ll be in ALERT MODE this morning for thunderstorms development late this afternoon and tonight. 


CBS News Chicago


At 12:30 this morning the Storm Prediction Center issued a Marginal chance (lowest) for severe storms. The main threats are hail, wind, and an isolated tornado that can’t be ruled out. These are low threats but we’ll see many dry hours during the day, and a lot of folks will be outside, so I’m being cautious.

After a few showers early this morning, we’ll see just a slight chance of rain during the day. By late afternoon we’ll see thunderstorms, ahead of a cold front that comes through the Chicago area during the Saturday-to-Sunday overnight. Some of the storms could be strong or severe. Seasonable temps.


Billiken parade: Looks good. Slight chance for a shower, maybe a bit of sunshine.

Sunday sees winds spin off the lake, behind the front, with partly sunny skies. Cooler than Saturday and even a little cooler by the lake.
