As warm and humid air remained parked in areas of Chicago, residents woke up to another round of heavy rain and thunderstorms.

The overnight hours were mostly quiet, but scattered showers and thunderstorms along with small hail, and gusty winds are expected throughout the morning until around 10 a.m. 

A Severe Thunderstorm Warning was issued for Will, Cook, Kankakee and DuPage counties until 9:30 a.m. Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.

In addition, another Severe Thunderstorm Warning was issued for Kenosha County in Wisconsin until 8:45 a.m.

Officials announced that the opening of the Chicago Air and Water Show would be delayed and instead scheduled to start at noon due to lightening in the area. The show was not expected to end at 3 p.m., according to a tweet sent out by the City of Chicago’s Office of Emergency Management and Communications.

After those storms pass through the area, warm temperatures and humid conditions are expected to remain in place for the remainder of Sunday, but it’s likely to remain dry for the afternoon and evening hours.

Monday is shaping up to be a gorgeous day, with temperatures in the low 80s and sunny skies throughout the area. Temperatures are expected to climb back into the high 80s on Tuesday, with the chance of rain and thunderstorms re-entering the forecast as the work week wears on.
