    As Chicago begins to recover from some of its coldest temperatures on record, it appears temps will bounce back in a big way. 

    Temperatures dipped to near historic levels, with lows Wednesday night and into Thursday morning dropping to -23 at O'Hare Airport, but relief is 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 nearly 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.

    That would mark an almost 70-degree difference in less than a week. 

    Temperatures will likely stay in the 30s and 40s through the start of the work week next week.
