National Weather Service predicts hazardous weather this evening

The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook late Saturday afternoon for north central and northeast Illinois including Kane, DuPage and Cook counties.

A social media post from the NWS’ Romeoville office noted a squall line “is expected to move over northern Illinois tonight and sweep toward the southeast into early Sunday morning.”

Strong, damaging winds and heavy downpours will accompany the storms through the evening and the heavy rainfall could cause some flash flooding.

The NWS website indicates accompanying winds may reach up to 60 mph. The forecast includes a low tornado risk according to the website.

Temperatures are expected to cool on Sunday but will steadily increase into the 90s on Tuesday, according to the NWS social media post.
