A hot and humid week with more showers and storms early in the week follow the strong storms that moved through the area on Friday.

The National Weather Service says that on Monday showers and storms will have greater coverage than any rain from Sunday and storms are expected to develop this evening.

Meteorologist Mike Spiel says showers and storms are expected this afternoon and early in the evening.

NWS says storms today will be capable of producing isolated downburst wind gusts up to 65 mph but should be mostly scattered. In addition, slow movement under 10 mph could cause some localized instances of Flash Flooding.

Additional periods of showers and storms are anticipated on Tuesday and early Tuesday night. By Wednesday, conditions clear up but it will remain warm and muggy.

The forecast calls for highs near 90 for the rest of the week and weekend.

In regard to the storms from Friday, widespread wind damage was noted with hail and flooding in some areas. Fairly minimal power outages that remained Saturday morning were primarily restored.  

On Friday evening, 60 to 70 mph winds were recorded near Somonauk and Oswego. Trees fell near Somonauk, Lisbon Twp. and Plattville among other areas in the region.

Kendall County saw less rain than some other areas with many totals under an inch. However, nearby readings in Sugar Grove were recorded as high as 1.69 inches. Over 2.29 inches was recorded in Elgin, the highest for the region.
