Chicago, suburbs to see colder weather, temperatures dropping starting Friday – NBC Chicago

Earlier this week, the Chicago area saw temperatures soar, eventually peaking — and setting a new record, according to NBC 5 Storm Team — of 76 degrees on Thursday. But what goes up must come down.

A mild Friday morning will keep temperatures in the 40s to 50s. But as the day progresses, those numbers are expected to drop. According to NBC 5 Storm Team, midday readings in the Chicago area will be around 46 degrees under partly sunny skies.

But by 6 p.m., temperatures are expected to hit 39.

Around 10 p.m., you’ll need a warmer jacket, as temperatures are expected to hover around 35 degrees, the NBC 5 Storm team says.

Highs are expected to reach the mid-30s on Saturday, but the added ripple will be some moisture in the atmosphere, which could lead to widely dispersed pockets of mixed precipitation, forecast models predict.

This disturbance will dissipate by Saturday evening, and it looks like the highs will remain in the 30s and 40s until the start of the new work week.

By Tuesday, another disturbance is expected to draw moisture to the region, with snow and mixed precipitation possible across the region.

High temperatures are not expected to move out of the upper 30s to 40s for some time, at least until next weekend according to the extended forecast models.
