CHICAGO (CBS) — Temperatures will be pleasant and cool for the rest of the day Friday, before rising through the weekend and spiking at a sweltering 94 degrees on Sunday.

CBS 2 Meteorologist Ed Curran reports as of 11:20 a.m., it was 75 degrees at O’Hare and Midway international airports, and 69 at Lake Michigan.

Wind was blowing down from the north and will later turn east. Sunshine will continue in the early afternoon, but clouds will later blow in and bring a chance for showers and thunderstorms overnight.
