After temperatures hit 90 earlier today, the National Weather Service is saying we'll have a chance of storms tonight, perhaps as soon as 9 p.m.

The weather service has issued no warnings this evening, and rain is not certain.

It says there's a 40 percent chance of rain, mostly after 11 p.m. in Schaumburg, for instance, and a 40 percent chance mostly after 9 p.m. in the Naperville area.

The weather service expected the highest temperatures of the year today. It did hit 90 degrees at 2:55 p.m. at O'Hare, with winds gusting to as high as 30 mph.

But it'll be a different story Wednesday and the rest of the week, when we return to the perfect mid-70s, and maybe we'll hit the 80s over the weekend. The chance of rain increases as the week goes on.
