FOX 32 News is keeping an eye on the Chicago area's changing weather. It is a bit colder outside Wednesday. Due to overnight storms, there's also concern over flooding in low-lying areas.

The area saw a deluge of rain that lasted until overnight, and prepared for temperatures to drastically drop throughout the morning.

Spring-like temperatures reached record-breaking temperatures in the low 60s on Tuesday. Area residents were exercising in shorts and t-shirts as well as commuting to work or school in light jackets.
