Last night the lightning was spectacular and we had hailstones so big it sounded like someone was throwing rocks at my windows for 30 minutes at a time. Today?

Rest of Today
Partly cloudy with a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Breezy. Unseasonably warm. Highs in the upper 70s. East winds around 10 mph early in the morning shifting to the southwest 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph at times in the afternoon.
Mostly cloudy. Chance of showers and thunderstorms in the evening...then showers and thunderstorms after midnight. Lows near 60. Then temperatures becoming steady or slowly rising. Southwest winds 10 to 20 mph. Gusts up to 30 mph in the evening. Chance of precipitation 80 percent.
The folks at WGN Radio say that we're in the middle of a severe thunder storm warning, with a chance of walnut-sized hail, until 8:00 a.m.

Drive carefully, okay?

(As for me, I might just be a little late for work today, as I don't relish the thought of walking to the train station in the middle of a hail storm.)
