Record Temps Possible Tuesday During Wild Weather Week
CHICAGO (CBS) — Mother Nature will pull out just about everything in her tool box for Chicago this week, from ice to record warmth to bitter cold and a bit of snow–all in about four days.
After yesterday’s struggle with freezing rain, temperatures warmed up overnight and highs are expected to reach the upper 40s on Monday.
On Tuesday, Chicago could set a record for warmth–with a forecast high of 62, reports CBS meteorologist Megan Glaros.
That would break a record set in 1914, when the high temperature was 59 degrees.
Then, cold air returns on Wednesday with flurries expected.
By Thursday, overnight lows will be in the single digits, with highs only in the teens on Friday.
