Temperature Drop Kicks in Tuesday

The calendar may read July 15 but that's not what it's going to feel like on Tuesday.

Unseasonably cool temperatures are expected to take hold in the Chicago area for at least a couple of days.

Expect temperatures in the middle 50s when you wake up Tuesday morning for most of the viewing area, with some spots in the western suburbs dropping to the high 40s. The mercury will only rise another 10 degrees by noon Tuesday, and will only top out in the high-60s, possibly hitting 70 in some areas.

Overnight Tuesday into Wednesday will also bring similarly unseasonably cool temperatures. Wednesday's high will be around 73 degrees, more than 10 degrees below average for this time of year.

Things start start to feel seasonably normal again by the end of the work week.

Weekend storms left several Chicago suburbs with damage and big cleanup tasks. The rain also prompted officials to cancel the Taste of Chicago Saturday.
