Cooler weather, clouds, rain and some thunderstorms will be the themes in the city through Friday this week.

By midweek, temperatures will drop down into the 50s as rain plagues Chicago, hindering outdoor activities.

Thursday will be the coolest day of the week as temperatures reach only into the low 50s.

Breezy winds, rain and thunderstorms will persist in the city Thursday. However, Friday will give residents a brief break from the storms as the sun makes an appearance during the afternoon hours.
