According to the National Storm Prediction Center, a majority of Illinois and Indiana – including Chi-town – there is potential severe weather coming this Sunday.

The remainder of the Chicago area is included in a “Slight Risk” an area depicting a 15% chance of severe storms within 25 miles of a given location.

Due to approaching low pressure and a cold front moving east out of the central plains, a wide band of strong to severe storms will likely develop. The system should move through Illinois and the Chicago area during the afternoon/early evening with supercell storms capable of damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes.
