A wave of thunderstorms swept hot and humid temperatures out of the Chicago area Saturday afternoon.

The storm knocked down trees in west suburban Forest Park and sent many running for cover in Matteson. Some ABC7 viewers even shot video and took photos of hail falling during the storm.

Cooler temperatures are expected to move into the area Sunday as well as dry weather.
