Tuesday Hot But Not Record-Breaking

AP

Leave your jacket at home today, Chicago. Temperatures are expected to rise to 88 degrees.

Temperatures in the Chicago area on Tuesday hit 90 degrees, the warmest day so far this year but not enough to break a record.

The record for May 14 is 92 degrees, set in 1982.

It was a welcome change after a frost advisory was issued Sunday night for much of the metro area and temperatures dropped into the mid-30s.

The summer-like weather continues through Tuesday evening then dips slightly before maintaining in the mid-70s to mid-80s for most of the week, but keep your umbrella handy.

Wednesday is expected to be partly to mostly sunny with highs in the low- to mid-80s with much cooler temperatures predicted along the lakefront by the afternoon. 

The forceast shows a slight chance for an isolated thunderstorm in far southern counties for Wednesday afternoon and evening, and a few showers and isolated storms remain possible in far southern counties Thursday. Otherwise the sunny, mild trend with highs in the mid-70s will continue.
