    As warmth is shunted to the east of Chicago, the city will end up in a zone of frequent showers and thunderstorms during much of the week.

    Mother's Day may be the least rainiest of the next several days but a shower or thunderstorm is possible at any time.


    There is the risk of locally severe thunderstorms later Sunday night through Monday night. People are urged to stay up to date with watches and warnings as they are issued.

    The storms may bring damaging wind gusts, flash flooding and remote chance of a tornado.

    Cooler air will settle over the region during the middle and latter part of the week.

    With even colder air aloft creating an unstable atmosphere, there will be the risk of pop-up showers and spotty thunderstorms most days Tuesday through Friday.
