Chicago weather: Fall creeps in as Sunday storms expected

by staff

As temperatures continue to creep down, fall is approaching in Chicago. A warm weekend should offer a parting taste of summer, though expected storms Sunday could rain out plans.

Temperatures in the mid-70s are expected Friday, the National Weather Service said. Nighttime temperatures could dip into the mid-50s.


The National Weather Service issued a dangerous swimming conditions warning for southern Lake Michigan beaches. Waves as high as six feet could create life-threatening currents and hazardous boating conditions near the shore Friday, the service said.

More warm weather is expected Saturday, when temperatures will cross into the 80s. But rain and possible thunderstorms might come Sunday afternoon, National Weather Service meteorologist Kevin Doom said.


“I would just make all your outdoor plans for Saturday,” he said.

The sunrise has gotten almost thirty minutes later since the start of the month, an illuminating mark of this all-too-fleeting season’s end. The meteorologist said the weather has similarly trudged autumn.

The city has seen closer to normal temperatures lately, though the weather is still slightly warmer than it is typically this time of year, he said.

“Temperatures have been on a downward trend,” Doom said. “We are starting slowly to transition toward fall-like weather.”

The temperature is set to remain in the mid-80s throughout early next week, with a strong chance for rain and thunderstorms lingering into Monday.
