Finally! Spring-like temperatures are nearly here, Chicago.
Though Tuesday remains well below average, with temps peaking in the mid-40s for most of the area, Wednesday's rebound makes it worth it -- especially after a particularly unseasonable and snowy Monday.
Wednesday morning's partly sunny, breezy and chilly conditions are expected to warm to the low to mid 60s by the afternoon.
Temps likely will dip into Wednesday evening with showers and a few potential isolated storms in the northern half of the metro area, but most of Thursday looks dry and mild with 60s still likely.
The warmest day of the week comes Friday, when we could see upper 60s to low 70s. (Rejoice!)
The not-so-great-news: Those higher temps bring the potential for showers and possible isolated storms in some spots.
The weekend currently looks partly cloudy, breezy and still warm for the season thanks to highs in the upper 60s to low 70s.
Those temps could fall in the afternoon, creating a chance for showers and storms. This is a developing system, so monitor the forecast for updates.
Enjoy the reprieve while you can. Sunday's much cooler temps top out in the mid-40s with rain and possible snow showers.
