Morning storms rolled through parts of northern Illinois Friday, but it’s not over yet.

Scattered thunderstorms, some possibly strong to severe, could develop across the area for the afternoon and evening hours once again. Storms that do develop will be capable of producing hail and strong wind gusts with potentially heavy rain. 

The greatest risk for storms sits between 4 and 9 p.m., according to the National Weather Service. Much of the Chicago area, with the exception of some southern locations, is under the marginal risk for severe weather. 

A Severe Thunderstorm Warning was already issued for Kane and McHenry counties Friday morning. 

The National Weather Service issued the warning around 9 a.m. when a severe thunderstorm was located over Marengo, moving east at 25 mph. 

Wind gusts of up to 60 mph and quarter-size hail were expected with the storms.

Friday began cloudy, mild and humid with showers and storms developing in the northern counties. After days of severe weather at times throughout the Chicago area, the region continues to be in a very hot to humid pattern for the next several days with periods of storms. 

Friday afternoon looks to be partly sunny, breezy, hot and humid with more scattered storms likely later in the afternoon and evening. 

High temperatures will reach the upper 80s to low 90s but heat index readings will be even warmer. Any storms will likely end early, though the chance for storms remains through the weekend.
