CHICAGO — After a hot and sticky week, we're in for a weekend cool down.
Temperatures will be cooler on Friday, hitting the mid-70s along the lakefront and topping out in the upper 70s further west in the city, said Ben Deubelbeiss, a National Weather Service meteorologist. There will be a light breeze.
Saturday will be a little warmer and more humid with temperatures in the low 80s, said Deubelbeiss. The day should be sunny and dry, but a cold front will come through the city during the night and scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible.
Sunday will be "more comfortable," though, with temperatures expected to hit the mid-70s near the lakefront and reach the upper 70s to low 80s inland, Deubelbeiss said.
"Most areas will probably be dry through the day" Sunday, Deubelbeiss said, but there's a chance for "popup" storms.
Normal temperatures are 85 for this time of year in Chicago.
