    Chicago: Thunderstorms to Return Memorial Day

    The return of thunderstorms to Chicago will coincide with Memorial Day.

    Unfortunately, the dry and sunny weather from Sunday will not carryover into Memorial Day.

    Instead, a shower or thunderstorm will rumble through and threaten to interfere with holiday parades and activities.


    Remember to seek indoors as soon as thunder is heard; you are then close enough to be struck by lightning.

    Setting the stage for the thunderstorms will be the warm air that will boost temperatures to the lower 80s. Residents will also notice an increase in humidity.

    The steamy weather will continue for Tuesday, when a frontal boundary will increase the danger for drenching and severe thunderstorms.
