Chicago, IL – As thunderstorms loom over northern Illinois, the National Weather Service Chicago cautions of potential quarter-sized hail later tonight into early Saturday morning. 

According to forecasts, this weather system is expected to unfold late in the evening and could produce hail large enough to cause property damage. The critical period for these severe conditions spans from 11 pm tonight to 4 am Saturday, with isolated storms potentially starting earlier and lingering into the morning hours.

Residents are advised to be prepared for sudden weather changes and to ensure they have methods to receive storm warnings. Protective measures such as sheltering vehicles and staying indoors during the storm are recommended to avoid the impacts of hail and heavy rain. 

Additionally, caution is urged for those who may be traveling, as roads may become treacherous with the combination of hail and excessive rainfall. This severe weather alert underscores the importance of being prepared for potential threats to safety and property.
