CHICAGO (CBS)– Temperatures will reach near 70 again on Wednesday, but there will be another chance for severe storms as a cold front moves in later in the day.
Temperatures will be in upper 60s and low 70s with a mix of sun and clouds.
Storm threat 5-8 this evening. Strong cold front on the way that will bring storms first… then high winds… and then fast falling temperatures. Highs in the 40s only tomorrow with rain showers in the afternoon. Some wet flakes may mix into the picture! @cbschicago pic.twitter.com/692VyojBIR
