Wednesday’s warmth and humidity are history for a day. North to northeast winds, traveling nearly the length of Lake Michigan on their journey into Chicago, will take a big bite out of recent warmth in the city lowering shoreline and beach temperatures to the upper 50s or low 60s while limiting inland highs to around 70-degrees.
Lighter winds and abundant sunshine Friday are to allow a modest temperature rebound into the mid or upper 70s at inland locations. Localized lake breezes could restrict beach temperatures to the upper 60s or low 70s.
Another significant round of thunderstorms appears to be shaping up for Saturday and Saturday night. But, the upcoming Father’s Day weekend isn’t likely to be a total washout with many hours on Sunday at the receiving end of a sun/cloud mix.
The humidity build-up predicted at that time may spark scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening.
