Severe thunderstorm should move out over Lake Michigan by 11:15PM

A severe thunderstorm moving through Chicago’s northern suburbs should move out over Lake Michigan and no longer threaten the area by 11:15PM.  

Until, then, the storm will still have the potential to produce damaging winds and large hail over northern Cook and southern Lake Counties.

A wind gust of 68mph occurred at O’Hare Airport at 10:45PM.

Damaging wind threat continues over Chicago's NW suburbs

At 10:30PM, a line of severe thunderstorms was moving through Lake, northern Cook and northern Du Page Counties.

Torrential downpours, lightning and 2″ hail can be expected with these storms.

The most significant threat is damaging winds.  Doppler radar continues to indicate strong and potentially damaging winds over southern Lake, NW Cook, and northern DuPage Counties. 

The good news, the latest radar scans indicate the straight line winds within the complex have weakened slightly, but this remains a dangerous storm.
