If temperature is any indication for how the Bears will perform at Soldier Field on Sunday, then the Chicago team can be hopeful for a victory.
After a cool, wet couple of days, warmer and drier conditions will move back in to the Chicago area. Overnight temperatures Saturday could drop into the 40s, but they will quickly warm up to a high of 71 degrees on Sunday.
Saturday's rain dried up in Chicago in the morning but is expected to persist in Northwest Indiana until early Sunday morning. Winds blowing in from the north and west will leave all of Northwest Indiana dry by game time, however.
The warming trend continues throughout the week, with each day warmer than the one before. Temperatures will stay in the upper 70s to start out the work week and reach the 80s by Wednesday. Thursday is expected to be the warmest day with a high of 84 degrees.
The next chance for storms arrives late Thursday and returns again Friday.
The Bears take on the Green Bay Packers at Soldier Field at noon on Sunday.
