CHICAGO (WLS) -- After storms passed through the Chicago area Tuesday morning, much of the region had a risk for severe storms in the evening.

Suburbs south and west of Chicago were under a Level 1 risk of severe storms, and much of the same area was under a 2% risk for tornadoes, ABC7 Chicago meteorologist Larry Mowry said.

Storms were possible between 4 and 10 p.m., Mowry said.

Some pockets of heavy rain will be possible Wednesday.

Flash flooding slowed down traffic along the Dan Ryan Expressway earlier Tuesday.
