CHICAGO (CBS) — Skies will be sunny and pleasant for the rest of the day Tuesday, but don’t look for it to get too much warmer on the lakefront.

CBS 2 Meteorologist Mary Kay Kleist says as of 11:20 a.m., it was 65 degrees at Midway International Airport, 64 at Midway, and 61 at the lakefront. Far outside the city, it was 67 in DeKalb, Peru, and Kankakee. High pressure is hovering over the area and keeping skies sunny.

A light northeast wind will dominate for the rest of the day, and keep the temperatures steady in the lower 60s by the lake. But areas farther out of the city will see the low 70s.

It will be 62 degrees with a northeast wind for the first pitch of the White Sox game at U.S. Cellular Field at 7:10 p.m.

As for the next chance of rain, it doesn’t come until Friday – and even then, it’s only 30 percent.

Warmer air is expected to move in for Wednesday.

Overnight Tuesday into Wednesday, the low is expected to bottom out at about 49 degrees. But on Wednesday, the high-pressure system will move out and bring a cold front slightly closer, allowing a southwest wind to blow in.

That southwest wind will drive temperatures up to 79 on Wednesday and 87 on Thursday. The high for Friday is 85, Saturday 84, Sunday 90 and Monday 88.
