    Mother's Day in the Chicago area stayed mostly dry, but it will end with potentially severe thunderstorms that will last until Monday.

    After a mostly dry day, the thunderstorms will move into the Chicago area Sunday night after 8 p.m. Many areas can expect to see heavy rain and lots of lightning with a potential for small hail as well.

    The storms will last through Monday morning and clear out by the afternoon as a cold front moves in. Rain showers and isolated storms could persist in Northwest Indiana throughout the day Monday.

    The high for Monday is 73 degrees, but temperatures will drop as the cold front moves in, bringing the highs for Tuesday and Wednesday to the upper 50s and low 60s.

    The rest of the week will remain mostly dry with temperatures rising again to the 70-degree range by next weekend.
