Severe Weather Path From Peoria to Northwest Cook County: Thunderstorms, Severe Weather And Tornadoes Developing

Chicagoland weather radar shows strong thunderstorms developing with the storms furthest northeast in Kane County and some just starting to enter the northwest panhandle of Cook County at 10:50 a.m. with more severe storms forming at 11:10 a.m.

The line of instability seems to cut through northwest Cook County. Thunderstorms have developed in a line projecting into Cook County from the severe weather that is approaching in a line from Peoria to Kane County and ultimately through northwest Cook County.

Satellite images show clouds blowing up with convection in a line from Peoria to north Cook County, McHenry County and Lake County. Thunder is rumbling in Arlington Heights at 11:00 a.m.

There is a confirmed report of a tornado touchdown near Peoria.
