Over the next several days, Chicago will face a mix-up of sunshine and some thunderstorms. Although temperatures will be on the rise this weekend, it will become cloudier and possibly stormy for Father's Day.

Sunday will be warmer with the chance of thunderstorms later in the day. Storms could pop up in the afternoon putting the 1:10 p.m. Sunday White Sox game against the Kansas City Royals in danger.

Those planning outdoor Father's Day activities will want to make sure to plan ahead in case of potential storms.

Rain will develop into the evening with an increased risk of thunderstorms, some of which could bring heavy rain. The low should be in the middle 60s.

To kick off the new workweek, clouds will start to break, but there cloud still be a lingering storm very early on Monday morning. However, sunshine will allow the afternoon to once again reach the mid-80s.

Thunderstorms will again pose a threat on Tuesday with more clouds than sun expected as temperatures push near 90.
