Severe storms south Tuesday afternoon and evening

We've definitely had more rain this winter season than snowfall, and the upcoming week features another chance for more rain in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.

A strong low pressure system will develop late Monday out west, pushing a warm front towards the Stateline Monday night.  Showers and even a few thunderstorms will possible Tuesday morning followed by a brief break in the weather by the afternoon.  If the warm front makes it this far north, temperatures could reach near 60 degrees Tuesday.  But this could also help fuel additional thunderstorms during the late afternoon and evening.  While most of the stronger storms will remain south, it's possible that storms with strong wind gusts could occur late Tuesday night. 

Colder air gets wrapped in following the passage of the low Wednesday.  If enough cold air is present with still a decent amount of moisture, there could be some accumulating snowfall by Wednesday night.
