Share post:

Chicago, Ill.- The US National Weather Service (NWS) has issued an advisory for potential severe weather in Chicago and surrounding counties for Tuesday, April 4th. 

The warning comes as the region braces for strong to severe storms with the possibility of damaging winds, hail, and a few tornadoes.

According to the NWS, the severe weather potential is expected to hit the region very late Tuesday afternoon and evening, with a second wave of storms predicted overnight. However, there are questions about whether the cap will weaken enough for storm development in the area.

The NWS has identified several areas that could be impacted, including Lake, Cook, Will, Dupage,  Kankakee, Iroquois, Ford, and Livingston counties. Residents in these areas are advised to stay tuned for forecast updates and to take necessary precautions.

The potential for severe weather comes after a string of severe storms that hit the region last month, causing significant damage to homes and property. The NWS is urging residents to take necessary precautions to protect themselves and their property.

In the event of severe weather, the NWS advises residents to stay indoors, away from windows, and to seek shelter in a sturdy building. If caught outside, individuals should seek shelter in a low-lying area, such as a ditch, and protect their head and neck with their arms.

The NWS will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as necessary.
