Chicago Weather: Scattered storms, showers move through Chicago area overnight

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chances for severe storms are greatly diminished, but scattered showers and some storms will move through overnight.

Initially the forecast showed the potential for severe weather between 5 p.m. and midnight as a cold front began sweep across the Chicago area, but a multitude of factors, including persistent cloud cover, have weakened those storms into something far more isolated, ABC7 meteorologist Cheryl Scott said.

Some rain showers and storms have coalesced in the western suburbs as of 11 p.m., and will continue to move east out onto the lake, but chances of severe weather across the area are marginal. Scott said some parts of the Chicago area may not see any rain at all.

The cold front will also cool us off for the rest of the week.

Showers and storms will end early Wednesday morning, with high temperatures in 70s through the weekend.
