DOWNTOWN — The weekend should be relatively cool but rain-free for Chicago.

Though temperatures are normally about 81 degrees this time of year, they'll top out in the low to mid-70s on Friday, said Ben Deubelbeiss, a National Weather Service meteorologist. They'll drop to the low 60s Downtown and the mid-50s on the outskirts of the city overnight.

Temperatures will hang around the mid-70s on Saturday, Deubelbeiss said, and will reach the mid to upper 70s Sunday.

Friday and Saturday should be dry, Deubelbeiss said, but the sky will get cloudier as the day goes on Saturday.

There could be showers in the afternoon and evening Sunday, Deubelbeiss said.

"Certainly Friday and Saturday look pretty nice. Even Sunday, I don't think will be a washout," Deubelbeiss said. The "first half of Sunday should be fine."
