It's the first day of fall, do you know where your umbrella is?

The National Weather Service forecast calls for rain over the weekend and into Tuesday, raising the possibility of a soggy Soldier Field for Sunday's Bears game.

On game day, the NWS predicts a 40 percent chance of showers and a high of 64 degrees.

While rain is not guaranteed, it will certainly be a chilly, grey afternoon. A 3:15 p.m. kickoff means temps could drop as low as 50 degrees by game's end.

Saturday calls for the most severe weather in the immediate forecast, with a 60 percent chance of showers and scattered thunderstorms which could produce hail.
