    The heavy rain hit the Chicago area during Monday's morning commute, with another round of storms slated to take aim at the region later in the day. 

    Another band of storms was expected to develop in the late afternoon and evening,again bringing downpours, lightning, small hail and gusty winds, as well as a marginal risk of severe weather.
