The chance for stormy weather will remain into the new week for Chicago.

Monday will continue the warm and stormy trend with highs in the mid-80s and a couple showers or thunderstorms around during the day.

However, Monday evening will see a chance for severe thunderstorms bringing the threat of downpours, large hail, damaging winds and even an isolated tornado.

The severe storms could lead to weather delays or a postponement for the 7:10 p.m. CDT game between the Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at U.S. Cellular Field.

The severe weather threat will dissipate as the calendar shifts to July on Tuesday. The first day of July will see breezy conditions and less humidity with periods of clouds and sun. Highs will remain in the mid-80s.

Looking ahead to the late week and the Fourth of July holiday, temperatures will remain in the 70s, with plenty of sunshine in store for Thursday and Friday.
