Chicago Weather: Severe storms possible overnight in Chicago, northern suburbs

CHICAGO (WLS) — Thunderstorms, some of which could be severe, are expected to pass through Chicago and its northern suburbs overnight.

The storms are expected to produce lightning, possible small hail and heavy rain, and the biggest risk to residents is flooding.

Radar-indicated rotation in a thunderstorm in Cook, Lake and McHenry counties prompted National Weather Service to issue a tornado warning for about 45 minutes Wednesday evening, but no touchdowns were reported or confirmed by the time the warning expired at 7:45 p.m.
