CHICAGO (CBS) — An interesting several hours are coming, with mild temperatures overnight, heavy rain by morning, then a big cool down through Friday afternoon.

A front parked itself across Chicago on Thursday afternoon and made for a huge range of temperatures – from the low 50s along the Wisconsin state line to nearly 80 in Kankakee.

But cooler days are on the way. And rain chances stay with us for most of the seven-day forecast.

It will be breezy and very mild with temperatures in the 60s overnight.
