this area is just the first category for that risk for severe storms and it does include part of the area. here are these storms developing monday at noon. nothing really tomorrow, but starting monday we'll watch a line of showers and storms work its way across the state and by about 4 5:00 they are approaching the north and western suburbs. this is this front and it's moving through but it becomes stationary so it will be a little tricky along with this area of low pressure. we could get periods of rain, showers andbstorms. it wall begins on monday. so it develops late monday with a shower maybe a thunderstorm and with that front stalling out we'll be just below 90-degrees, but we could have periods of rain, both monday night, tuesday, wednesday. maybe by thursday we'll get a little break so we could dry out briefly on thursday with partly cloudy skies. it will be a bit stormy this week. not comfortable like it is now. the showers and storms are in the forecast both monday, tuesday and even wednesday.
and now we'll drop down below 90 starting on tuesday at 89. just a little bit, but itself he's enough. 86-degrees, chance of a shower on wednesday. we could dry out just a bit on thursday with a mix of sunday and clouds. the temperatures 83-degrees. the humidity comes back on friday. and by next weekend we could see maybe just a few showers coming in. but at least we're getting a little bit of rain. lawns will like it. we could see the lawnmowers firing back up. a lot of brown patches on my lawn. >> really? well, still ahead on fox 29 airport officials go all out to return a lost piece of luggage. how they managed to reunite a couple with a precious momento that this they really thought was gone forever. plus, a woman blind for nearly two decades is seeing the wor
