    It might be bitter cold now, but in a matter of days, the Chicago area could see temperatures up to 70 degrees warmer.

    As temps dip to near historic levels, with lows Wednesday night and into Thursday morning dropping to -27 or lower, it appears there is some relief in sight.

    By Friday, temperatures will rise into the upper teens and low-20s, but that’s just the beginning of the warmer weather ahead.

    Saturday is expected mark a roughly 60-degree difference in temperatures, as highs rise to the mid- to upper-30s. And by Sunday, rain is possible with highs in the low to mid-40s.
