Cloudiness will be on the increase during the day Thursday as low pressure develops to our south. The bulk of the rain will most likely fall Thursday night with upwards of a half inch possible in many areas. As the low pressure moves from the Tennessee Valley eventually reaching the east coast, the Chicago area will rest on the northern edge of the cloud and rain pattern Friday into Saturday.
We should then remain precipitation-free and seasonably mild into the middle of next week with the exception of a brief incursion of cooler air Monday. Overall the coming 10 days will average about 10 degrees warmer than the past 10 and about 8 degrees above normal.
