The greatest chance for severe thunderstorms in Arlington Heights and surrounding suburbs are likely from 12:30 a.m. to 3:30 a.m. Thursday, July 29, 2021. Peak winds are likely from 2:30 a.m. to 3:30 a.m. Wind gusts in thunderstorms of 60-70 MPH are possible, but the apex of the bow echo with wind gusts possibly in excess of 75 MPH are expected with uncertainty to pass northeast of Arlington Heights and surrounding suburbs. Storms will be moving from northwest to southeast.




Unstable air overnight ahead of a cold front “cool front” will bring the potential for a complex of severe thunderstorms with damaging winds and possibly a tornado. The greatest chance for severe weather is in McHenry County, Lake County, north and northwest Cook County with a greater chance Wednesday night before midnight Thursday across Wisconsin from northwest Wisconsin to central Wisconsin to southeast and most of east Wisconsin. There is a chance of a tornado in northern Illinois, but the greater chance exists in most of Wisconsin.

There is a good chance of damaging thunderstorm winds overnight in McHenry County, Lake County and extreme northern Cook County. High end wind gusts are also possible in southern Lake Michigan along with water a meteotsunami (high waves driven by air-pressure disturbances often associated with fast-moving weather events, such as severe thunderstorms, squalls, and other storm fronts) or seiche (high waves usually caused by high winds) early Thursday morning. Meteosunami and seiche can happen simultaneously.




One-half inch to an inch of rain is possible in Arlington Heights between midnight and 7:00 a.m. However, storms may build behind the forward flank of thunderstorms which would increase the risk of heavier rains and flash flooding in the northwest suburbs.

Following a high of 85°F from 11:00 a.m. to noon Thursday, cooler temperatures with the associated cold front is forecast to arrive between 12:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Thursday with air temperature at 78°F by 6:00 p.m. and 74°F by 9:00 p.m.

Weather Radar in northeast Illinois was clear at 7:50 p.m. The nearest radar echos at 7:50 p.m. were forming along a line in northern Wisconsin from Green Bay to Wasau to Rice Lake and south of Hayward.
