    Chicago Weather: Another Rainy Start

    Andy Avalos has the latest forecast update for the Chicago area. 

    (Published Wednesday, May 1, 2019)

    The Chicago area woke up to more rain Wednesday morning, making for yet another wet morning commute amid a stormy week. 

    After a foggy and overcast day, storms producing heavy downpours, lightning and at times small hail pelted parts of northern Illinois on Tuesday evening, with rain continuing through the overnight hours into Wednesday. 

    The storm system was expected to clear the area late Wednesday morning, which looks to see a mostly cloudy and milder afternoon, with temperatures climbing into the 60s in most areas, even reaching the 70s south of I-80.

    But don't swap the umbrellas for sunscreen just yet. A few showers or an isolated storm will be possible Wednesday afternoon, mainly in northwest Indiana.

    Temperatures drop as a cold front passes, with Wednesday evening looking damp and chilly with drizzle and areas of fog, a few spotty showers possible as well. 

    A few showers linger Thursday morning before clouds break for partial sun in the afternoon, though scattered showers and storms will be possible late.

    But there's a light at the end of the rainy tunnel, Chicago - and it's the potential for a sunny weekend.

    Sunday begins with mostly sunny skies that turn partly cloudy in the afternoon with a chance for showers to return in the evening.
