After an eventful weather week, the Chicago area is going to be treated to sunny and pleasant conditions for several days.
According to forecast models, the heat and high humidity that dominated the forecast throughout the week will be banished from the picture on Saturday, with much lower humidity readings and pleasant temperatures throughout the region.
Highs will only reach the mid-70s along the shores of Lake Michigan, but further inland temperatures will rise into the low-to-mid 80s.
Those who are fans of the Saturday forecast will like Sunday’s as well, as it is virtually identical, with highs in the low-to-mid 80s inland and sunny skies throughout the day.
