Chicago Tornado Watch Apple Size Hail Tuesday Night

Chicago neighbors should be on alert for possible tornadoes Tuesday night due to wild weather shifts and a tornado watch.

Chicago is experiencing wild weather shifts, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a tornado watch for Tuesday night. This means that conditions are favorable for tornadoes, as well as wind gusts of up to 70 MPH and hail the size of an apple. The watch is in effect until 10 p.m. Central Time.

Meteorologists have warned of drastic weather shifts over the next several hours, including the possibility of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms with hail and damaging winds. Following this, temperatures are expected to plummet as a cold front races across Chicago and the suburbs, dropping temperatures by 20-30 degrees in just an hour. This dramatic change will result in a 49-degree difference between Tuesday and Wednesday's high temperatures.

The National Weather Service has described the temperature change as "nothing short of dramatic," with wind chills near or below zero expected on Wednesday morning after summer-like temperatures in the 70s on Tuesday. Additionally, snow is expected to hit tonight and Wednesday morning, although the amount is still uncertain. Cooler conditions will persist through Thursday before temperatures begin to rise again over the weekend. Residents are advised to be on alert and take necessary precautions in light of these weather developments.
