CHICAGO — Potentially heavy storms could drench the Chicago area and bring strong winds Tuesday evening, though much of the rest of the week looks to be sunny and warm, according to the National Weather Service.
The weather service warned of damaging winds and heavy rain, though meteorologist Mark Ratzer said it was too early to tell where the severe weather could hit.
Rain is expected to move through the area in late afternoon or evening, Ratzer said, and could continue into the night.
The high for Tuesday should be near 89 degrees, and it's likely to be muggy throughout the day.
Storms could linger into Wednesday, the weather service said, though they are not expected to be severe.
The rest of the week is expected to be mostly sunny with temperatures in the 70s and low 80s.
