CHICAGO (WLS) -- Storms brought heavy rain to parts of the Chicago area Thursday morning.

Several watches and warnings were issued for Chicago's south and southwest suburbs and parts of northwest Indiana throughout the morning.

The storms brought heavy rain, with even some small hail reported in Orland Park.

The storms have also led to ground stops at both O'Hare and Midway airports, which were subsequently lifted.

Storms moved out in the late morning and early afternoon hours, and a cold front is moving in.

Storms are firing up downstate and there is a tornado watch in central and southern Illinois.

Thursday night should be colder and breezy, ABC7 Chicago meteorologist Larry Mowry said.

Saturday should be dry and sunny for Chicago's St. Patrick's Day parade.
