CHICAGO (CBS) -- A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued until 7 pm for much of the Chicago area, and a severe thunderstorm warning has been issued for Cook and DuPage counties until 7:45 p.m.
The threat window is 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday night. Severe storm warnings are likely somewhere in the viewing area tonight. A tornado warning is certainly in the realm of possibility.

Another Severe Thunderstorm Warning was issued for Kane and Kendall counties until 5:15 p.m.
