By Ian Livingston

Hot on Tuesday, risk of storms late

Mostly sunny skies combined with low levels of humidity have produced another nice, though somewhat hot, summertime day. Highs are now topping out in the upper 80s across the area and pleasant conditions will last through the afternoon and evening.

Tonight: We'll see some clouds drift by overnight, and temperatures will once again respond to the relatively dry air in place by dropping off a good bit from daytime highs. Expect mid 60s in the suburbs to right around 70 in the city.

Tomorrow: Tuesday will be partly sunny with a risk of late-day showers and thunderstorms. Highs should once again reach above 90 in most locations, with a few mid 90s possible if enough sunshine heats things up. By late afternoon or during the evening, an area of rain and storms will develop northwest of the region and may track toward the area. Any storms that pass through have the potential to be strong, with the primary threat being gusty winds.

There is a nasty June 4th-esque derecho/bow echo/insert-choice-name-for-it-here tearing through Illinois and Indiana right now, about to go into Ohio. Hopefully it won't hold together, because if it does, it looks like it would be a close call for our area. That would be one hell of a wake up call - having a 50 foot tree snap in half behind your house...

weatherdude: The thunderstorm complex should decay as it heads eastward with just cloud debris impacting our area in the morning. It will be a close call, though.
