It looks like its just going to be one of those days, weather-wise.

We’re likely in store for more of the rain that showered the Chicago area this morning, and it probably won’t do much to lessen the humidity.

According to, there’s a 90 percent chance we’ll see heavy thunderstorms around noon, with continued scattered thunderstorms possible through the early afternoon. According to National Weather Service-Chicago, some areas could see additional rainfall after 6 p.m. and Accuweather both show a likelihood of thunderstorms in the late evening, also, around 10 and 11 pm.

And throughout it all, humidity won’t fall below 79 percent, according to Accuweather.

So stay dry, stay cool, and good luck.
