CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago residents should enjoy this afternoon’s relatively mild temperatures, as showers and storms are expected to roll in later this afternoon.

The high today is expected to hit 70, but a cold front will bring in the rain, and some strong storms this evening, and then a drop in temperatures.

Up to a half-inch of rain is expected, CBS 2’s Megan Glaros reports.

The high on Thursday and Friday will be in the middle 50s.

The weekend looks dry, with Sunday being the warmer day–with highs in the 60s.
