Chicago area weather forecast for Tuesday, June 7, 2010

We don't need it, but another round of stormy weather is headed towards the region.

An area of low pressure if forecast to move out of the plains and make a line in our direction during the day Tuesday.  Showers will be likely as we start the day and we could see a few thundestorms as well.  The chance for storms goes up through the day with the best chance for storms coming Tuesday evening as the low drags a cold front through the region.

The Storm Prediction Center is keeping an eye on things and it sees a chance for some storms to become severe, mainly in areas south of I-80.  The biggest threats from any storm will be damaging winds and large hail and as always we'll watch for potentially deadly lightning.

Heavy rain is going to be possible Tuesday as well.  One to two inches of widespread rainfall is expected across the region with larger amounts possible with thunderstorms.  With some areas already soaked from recent rains we will watch for any potential flooding issues.

We should dry out for Wednesday as high pressure moves over the region.  By late Thursda there is a chance for a few showers or storms and we'll start to heat up heading into the weekend.
