    Brisk, Chilly Conditions in Chicago For Election Day

    Sunshine is expected to start off the workweek in the Windy City, but temperatures will fall off on Tuesday as a front moves into the area. This front could spark spotty rain showers, leading to a brisk and soggy Election Day for many.

    Temperatures will top out near 50 degrees on Monday with a good deal of sunshine. Clouds will increase tomorrow night ahead of the aforementioned warm front.

    This system will spark a round of scattered rain showers, which will move into Chicago by the midday hours on Tuesday. Soggy conditions will continue into Tuesday evening, which means that there could be travel delays and slow-downs as folks are heading out to vote.

    Travel could be slower than normal along Lakeshore Drive as well as Interstates 94, 90, and 55, especially the later in the day it becomes.

    These showers will move out after midnight Tuesday night, leading to another chilly day on Wednesday, despite the return of sunshine.

    Some milder air will move into the region by Thursday and Friday with temperatures returning to near normal for this time of year.
