Storms Remain Possible After Tornado Warning Expires

Most locations are expected to stay dry, but isolated scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible at any time

After a breezy, hot and humid day Wednesday, strong thunderstorms are continuing to pop up across the Chicago area. 

A Severe Thunderstorm Warning issued for several counties in northeast Illinois, originally set to expire at 11:15 p.m., was canceled after the storms weakened below severe limits. 

The storm packed wind gusts of up to 60 mph in several locations, according to trained weather spotters. 

An earlier Tornado Warning issued for McHenry, Lake and Cook counties in northeast Illinois was allowed to expire at 7:45 p.m., according to the National Weather Service. 

The chance for showers and storms will continue overnight, but should subside for the morning commute. It will return on Thursday afternoon however before cooler weather finally moves back in Friday.
