Chicago Could Get Thunderstorms And Winds Up To 60 M.P.H. Tonight

We could get thunderstorms and high winds in Chicago this afternoon and evening, the National Weather Service reports. There's a high risk of severe thunderstorms and winds of up to 60 m.p.h., according to the NWS, plus a "limited" risk of hail and excessive heat. The heat seems unlikely to get too crazy, though—the high today is 87, according to Accuweather, and the low is a highly-normal 72.

Overall, this forecast really isn't as apocalyptic as it could be, but hey—if you can avoid wandering around on random rooftops hugging lightning rods tonight, do so. It also might not be the best night ever for Pokemon GO?

Just kidding. Every night is the best night for Pokemon GO.
