    Showers are predicted again Friday with thunderstorms possible after 2 p.m. When it's not raining, the day remains cloudy with temperatures in the mid-50s.

    Chicago is expected to dry out Saturday morning after a rainy Friday night with showers likely before 8 p.m. and again until 2 a.m. The weekend sees highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s, but after a drought-filled summer, the rain isn't over yet.

    Another bout of showers is predicted for next week.
