    Chicago Weather: A Wet One

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

    (Published Monday, Aug. 26, 2019)

    After a wet morning in the Chicago area Monday, more rain is expected along with scattered storms in the evening. 

    Thunderstorms may become more widespread as the night continues.

    Some of these systems, particularly ones that develop south of Chicago, could bring with them damaging wind gusts of up to 60 mph and the potential for localized flooding.

    A Beach Hazards Alert was in effect along the shores of Cook and Lake counties until 10 p.m. due to large waves and strong rip currents.

    Temperature highs are expected to rise into the low- to mid-70s.

    Tuesday looks to be mostly dry aside from a few morning showers or storm in northwest Indiana. The rest of the week is expected to stay dry with highs in the 70s.
