    Wet weather dampened the morning commute Tuesday with heavy rainfall reported across the Chicago area.

    Models predicted anywhere from one to two inches of rain falling across the area Tuesday.

    The rain is expected taper off heading into the afternoon hours ahead of a cold front in the area.

    Tuesday high temperatures are expected to range from the low to mid 60s inland and much cooler 50s along the lakefront because of a brisk wind off Lake Michigan.

    Keep your umbrella handy throughout the week. Showers and isolated thunderstorms remain possible Wednesday as highs reach the low to mid-70s.

    The threat for rain and storms continues through Sunday.

    The good news? High temps in the upper 70s and low 80s on Thursday and Friday. Both days are expected to be partly sunny, breezy, warm and humid.

    Mother's Day weekend kicks off with slightly cooler but still above-average highs in the mid-70s. A few storms again are possible, especially late in the day.

    Mom's big day looks mostly cloudy and even cooler with highs in the mid to upper 60s.
