Illinois may see severe thunderstorms, wind gusts, hail


LINCOLN, Illinois — Parts of Illinois could see severe thunderstorms with damaging wind gusts and large hail as a powerful storm system moves through the Midwest.

The National Weather Service says tornadoes are possible as the hazardous weather hits the region Sunday afternoon and evening.

The system is the result of a cold front extending from the north central Plains into the southern Plains that pushed up behind warm, moist air.
