While Labor Day marked an unofficial end to the summer, the Chicago area will see warm, humid conditions continue before temperatures slide late in the week.

"A cold front will move through on Friday with showers and thunderstorms likely," AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Brian Edwards said.

As the storms pass the Chicago area, cooler weather will return. Temperatures will slide into the low 70s for the weekend.
