CHICAGO (CBS) — It is the first day of June and the first day of meteorological summer, but it feels more like late fall as the temperature remains stuck in the 50s.
CBS 2 Meteorologist Mary Kay Kleist reports the rainmaker that left the area somber and soggy on Thursday has moved on, but skies remain overcast as cool, but dry, winds blow at a sustained speed of 15 mph from the northwest and gust up to 25 mph.
The temperature as of 11:20 a.m. was 55 at O’Hare International Airport, 57 at the lakefront, and 54 at Midway Airport.
The northwest winds will later turn northerly, and the clouds will give way to late-day sun, particularly over the lake.
The high for the day is 62 degrees, but it will only by 57 when the White Sox throw their first pitch against the Seattle Mariners at U.S. Cellular Field at 7:10 p.m.
Overnight, the winds die down as the temperature drops to 50. An isolated storm chance remains over the weekend, but the high for Saturday climbs to 74 with a chance of a pop-up thunderstorm in the afternoon.
For Sunday, the high is forecast at 75, but some areas could even see 80. The high for Monday is 75 with a chance of rain, Tuesday 74, Wednesday 76 and Thursday 77.
