Chicago is finally warming up after weeks of frigid daytime temperatures, and the city could see an unexpected high this week.
Temperatures reached into the mid-30s Monday, although they will likely drop to the low- and mid-20s overnight.
The warming trend will continue Tuesday as highs stay in the 30s before climbing to the upper-40s and possibly, even low-50s by Thursday.
The warmth follows a stretch of brutally cold temperatures the Windy City hasn't experienced since 1936.
It is possible that a dense fog will develop midweek and localized ice jam flooding will remain a threat on area rivers.
