Severe or severe weather is expected along the Illinois-Wisconsin border – NBC Chicago

Thursday morning started out bright and sunny for most parts, but storms and showers were on the way, the NBC 5 Storm Team said, along with the possibility of severe weather.

According to NBC 5 meteorologist Alicia Roman, clouds were expected to increase in the afternoon. A few scattered thunderstorms are expected in some places until 13.00 or 14.00. Some of these storms could become strong and severe during the afternoon and early evening, especially in counties along the Illinois-Wisconsin border, Roman said.

As of 5 p.m., counties to the north and west, including Boone, McHenry and parts of Lake County, Illinois, will be at a “marginal” risk of severe weather at level five on the Storm Prediction Center’s severe weather scale.

According to the National Meteorological Service, “Thunderstorm is expected in all areas today afternoon and evening”. “A strong storm with hail and wind near the Wisconsin border this evening cannot be ruled out.”

According to Roman, the main threat associated with the storms that occurred on Wednesday evening were strong winds, hail and heavy rain.

Temperatures on Thursday were expected to be in the mid-70s, but cooler along the lake, Roman said.

Light fog is possible Friday morning, the NWS said. Roman may also see isolated storms develop Friday afternoon. Friday’s high temperatures were expected to be in a wide range, with cooler temperatures in the 60s and 70s near the lake and in the 80s elsewhere.
