Monday looks to be another gorgeous spring day in Chicagoland.

It’ll be calm and quiet, with abundant sunshine. High temperatures will reach the low 70s inland and the 60s near the lake.

But a line of thunderstorms is expected to move into the area later Tuesday, bringing with it the chance for severe weather, including strong wind, hail and tornadoes. The biggest threat will be Tuesday from around 5 p.m. until about midnight, but the chance for severe weather could persist into early Wednesday morning.

As of now, though, the highest risk for severe weather Tuesday into Wednesday remains well west of Chicagoland, but we’ll keep you updated as the system approaches Tuesday evening.

After that, it’ll be cooler for the latter part of the week.

Forecast

TODAY: Mainly sunny, cooler lakeside, winds ENE at 5-10 mph. High: 73/67.

TONIGHT: Mostly clear, winds ENE at 5-10 mph, increasing clouds late. Low: 50.

TOMORROW: Mostly cloudy, cooler lakeside, evening severe t’storm chance, winds E at 10-20 mph, gusts to 30. High: 72/64.
