It will be a warm and pleasant day in the Chicago area Saturday, as above average temperatures and mostly sunny conditions are in the forecast for the region.
After a mild start to the morning, temperatures will steadily rise throughout the day, with highs topping out in the mid-to-upper 70s in most locations.
While conditions are expected to remain mostly dry, there are several chances for quick showers to move through the area. In the early afternoon hours showers could be possible in the west and northern suburbs of Chicago, and then in the late evening hours showers could potentially move through the southern suburbs and into northwest Indiana, according to forecast models.
Temperatures Sunday will drop by just a few degrees, as another afternoon of highs in the 70s is expected. The occasional shower is possible as well, but conditions should stay mostly dry throughout the region.
By Monday temperatures are expected to drop to slightly-below-normal levels, with highs in the upper-50s and low-60s in most locations for the start of the work week.
