Storms possible Sunday ahead of unseasonably cool week

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Scattered thunderstorms on a balmy Sunday afternoon could be the precursor to another unseasonably cool July week in Chicago.

Isolated storms will be possible “just about anywhere” across the Chicago area through this afternoon as a cold front moves in from the west, according to a National Weather Service outlook statement.

The storms aren’t expected to be severe, but they could pack pea- to dime-sized hail and windgusts of up to 50 mph, the weather service said.

Forecasters warned that a stormy Sunday could make for dangerous beach conditions on Lake Michigan through Monday night, with waves of up to 11 feet and strong rip currents.

The cooler airmass will keep temperatures down the rest of the week, as highs aren’t expected to top 78 degrees for the rest of the week, forecasters said. Seasonal average high temperatures for July are about 84 degrees in Chicago, according to the weather service.

Isolated showers and thunderstorms could pop up Tuesday through the end of the week, forecasters said.
