Chicago is about to see more sunshine and warmth in the forecast for Easter weekend.
Saturday morning was off to a cooler start, but sunny skies, wind and warmer temperatures in the mid-to-upper 60s are expected to quickly develop throughout the day. A few areas could hit 70 degrees, kicking off several days of mild conditions.
Easter Sunday looks mostly sunny and unseasonably warm. Highs could range from the upper 60s to low 70s inland and, because of a developing lake breeze, upper 50s near Lake Michigan.
Monday remains quite warm, sunny and breezy with highs in the low to mid-70s and a few showers and storms possible.
