    Some sun is in store for Chicago early this weekend but storms will roll into the city before the weekend concludes.

    Although temperatures rose Thursday, a series of thunderstorms rolled through Chicago on Thursday afternoon and evening, threatening the last game between the Cubs and Diamondbacks at Wrigley Field.

    Those headed out to the game should watch for possible delays and be prepared for rain and breezy winds.

    Friday looks to be the warmest day of the week as dry weather returns to the area. Temperatures will climb well into the 60s under partial sunshine with some spots even touching 70 F.

    Heading into the weekend, cooler weather will be prominent in the city with temperatures in the 50s to last into next week.

    Saturday will be the sunniest of the two weekend days for those looking to spend some time outdoors.
