DOWNTOWN — Rainstorms and cold temperatures will take over the city throughout the weekend.
Temperatures will hit around 70 degrees on Friday, and the day will be mostly dry, said Jamie Enderlen, a National Weather Service meteorologist. Showers and thunderstorms will move in during the night, with rain hitting the hardest north of the city in Cook County.
The storms will continue into Saturday morning, though the afternoon won't see anything "too bad," Enderlen said. The high temperature for the day will be about 75 degrees.
A cold front with a line of rain showers and storms will come through the area Saturday night, Enderlen said. Chicago should expect "strong storms and windy conditions," she said, with some gusts outside of the storms reaching 30 mph. It's too early to determine how strong the wind will be in the storms, Enderlen said.
"Fall looks like it's trying to make a comeback here," Enderlen said.
The cold front should be east of Chicago by Sunday morning, but the wind will stick around and it'll be a "blustery" day, Enderlin said. Temperatures will only hit the upper 50s.
It'll also be cold on Monday, which will see temperatures in the mid-40s Downtown in the morning before they peak around 60 degrees, Enderlen said.
The rest of the week should gradually become warmer, with midweek temperatures hitting around 70 degrees, Enderlen said. The beginning of the week is expected to be relatively dry.
