No more tornado threat in Cook, DuPage
The National Weather Service has cancelled a tornado warning for Chicago-area suburbs as a severe thunderstorm system moved through the area this afternoon.
Weather service officials say the storm that prompted the warnings earlier Sunday afternoon had weakened and no longer posed a threat of tornados.
The national weather agency had initially reported a tornado was possible as thunderstorms moved across Cook and DuPage counties. The warnings were supposed to remain in effect until 3 p.m. but were cancelled shortly before then.
Despite the cancellation, 50-mph winds and heavy rainfall was still expected.
Weather service officials say the severe storm was moving northeast at 45 mph toward Carol Stream, Bartlett, Roselle, Hanover Park, Medina, Itasca, Schaumburg and Elk Grove Village.
