Because of the holiday, I am going to cover the tornado threat
in the headlined area.
There is a serious threat of tornadoes in the outlined area. This includes Chicagoland. Please make sure your family and friends are aware. With people being outdoors, etc., the word may to get out as fast as usual.
At 1:28pm, there are already tornado warnings in SE Iowa with increasing thunderstorms throughout this area.
When the tornado watch is issued, I will post it.
