Rainy start to the week
Clouds and showery weather will probably keep temperatures below 80-degrees Sunday and Monday; and if that’s the case, it will be only the 6th time at the Midway observing site (dating back to 1928) that we did not reach 80-degres the first 10 days in June.
Chicago’s official June temperatures through Saturday were averaging 5.5-degrees below normal, but readings should rebound this coming week – highs reaching at least into the upper 70s each day of the workweek after Monday, and well into the 80s over the coming weekend.
However, wet conditions here should resume, with computer models indicating over a half-inch of rain generated by showers and thunderstorms Sunday into Monday, and then as much as an inch of rain with the next round of showers and thunderstorms Wednesday and Thursday. Even more rain is possible next weekend.
On the national front, the season’s first tropical storm Andrea will be moving rapidly away from Newfoundland out into the North Atlantic Ocean later Sunday, while 110-degree heat continues over portions of the southwestern U.S.
