Tuesday should be drier and sunnier than Monday was.
Monday's rain moves out, but the clouds will remain through the overnight hours.
The good news is a still-parched Chicago will see another quarter- to half-inch of rain, according to the National Weather Service, with more on the way. Drought conditions have persisted through much of Illinois, and Chicago remains about five inches deficient for the year.
The NWS predicts a 30 percent chance of showers before 1 a.m. Tuesday and another round of rain Wednesday night into Thursday.
Until then, the temperature should match Monday's gray color and clouds. Highs top out in the low 70s.
Warmer temperatures move in Tuesday, though, with more sunshine and a high near 70. Temps climb from there to 85 on Wednesday and Thursday.
Fall returns later in the week, and temps dip back down around 70 degrees.
