Fog dissipates as temperatures rise

CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Fog has dissipated and visibility improved in the Chicago area after causing flight delays at O'Hare and Midway airports Monday morning.

Dense fog cleared out of the area about 1 p.m. as temperatures rose Monday, said National Weather Service meteorologist Charles Mott, adding the temperature at O'Hare was 69 degrees as of about 2 p.m.

Patches of fog remain in the Waukegan area, he said.

Thunderstorms are expected in the area between 6- 11 p.m., and in northwest Indiana, thunderstorms are expected until about 2-3 a.m., Mott said.

Winds are expected to gust to about 30 mph under mostly cloudy skies, the NWS said. Winds are expected to die down about midnight or 1 a.m. as storms leave the area.

Due to breezy southerly winds, temperatures will remain in the mid to upper 60s with areas south of I-80 climbing to 70 degrees, the NWS said.
