A beautiful holiday weekend lies ahead of us! Ample sunshine and a bright blue sky is in the forecast for Saturday. Temperatures will rise into the mid-to-upper 70s across much of northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. If you’re headed east toward Lake Michigan, expect cooler air thanks to the cold lake water. Mainly clear skies will stick around Saturday night with lows in the lower 50s.
Sunday will be even warmer, with highs pushing 80 degrees. A mostly sunny day will include a few more clouds than Saturday, especially by afternoon. A widely-isolated shower is possible after dark. An isolated thunderstorm is possible overnight as temperatures stay comfortable, falling to near 60.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will enter our forecast for Memorial Day as temperatures warm up into the lower 80s. We’ll notice an increase in humidity on Monday as well. Our chance of rain is 50% so we will have plenty of dry time with some peeks of sunshine!
