A brief tornado touched down very close to the Cook/Will county line near Shabbona Drive. It tracked northeast where it produced a localized area of fairly widespread tree damage consistent with high-end EF-0 wind speeds. The worst damage was confined to a small area near Marquette and Somonauk Parks, although very little structural damage was noted in this area. The tornado lifted over Schuberts Woods Forest Preserve. Sporadic straight-line wind damage continued east towards State Street east of South Chicago Heights.
