With Rolling Stones fans flocking to Soldier Field once more, all eyes won’t just be on the stage, they’ll also be on the skies as stormy weather is possible in the Chicago area.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for much of the Chicago area, including Cook, DeKalb, Lake, DuPage, Kane and McHenry counties, until 9 p.m. A few isolated strong storms will be possible in the afternoon and early evening, bringing the threat of damaging winds and large hail.

The risk for severe weather remains area-wide throughout the day. Nearly all of the Chicago area is under the “slight” risk category for severe conditions.

Where exactly storms will develop remained unclear as of Tuesday morning. Rolling Stones fans faced a similar, though much cooler, forecast on Friday, but the band’s tour began with a mostly dry show from start to finish.
