    If you're planning outdoor activities this weekend, Sunday is probably your best bet.

    Wet weather is headed to the Chicago area in two waves Saturday. NBC 5 meteorologist Brant Miller says showers will begin to develop during the early-morning hours in the western suburbs.

    The Storm Prediction Center places Chicago in the slight risk category for severe storms Saturday morning and later in the evening.
