After a spell of abnormally cool weather, warmer and more humid air will settle over Chicagoland on Tuesday.

However, this summerlike air will help fuel thunderstorms late on Tuesday into Tuesday night, and some can be strong with damaging winds and hail.

The Chicago Cubs will host the New York Yankees in a two-game series beginning on Tuesday night at Wrigley Field at 7:05 p.m. CDT. The threat of a severe thunderstorm will remain into the evening, however.

It will be warm on Wednesday with highs in the 80s and less humidity, making for good conditions for the 1:20 p.m. CDT matchup between the Cubs and Yankees.

Things will cool down a bit late in the week as temperatures move down below normal into the upper 60s on Thursday and Friday.

The temperatures should rebound into the Memorial Day weekend with highs in the 70s to near 80 and plenty of sunshine.
