    There will be an uptick in humidity and storms in Chicago for much of this week.

    Highs this week will range from the upper 70s to low to mid-80s, which is close to normal highs of 82 F. With high humidity factored in, AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures will be a bit higher in the mid-90s during the afternoon hours.

    A break in the stormy weather will come on Wednesday, with time of clouds and sun and highs around 78 F. However, there is the chance for a late-night shower in spots.


    Lingering thunderstorms could threaten midweek games at Wrigley Field, as the Cubs take on the San Francisco Giants in a three-game home series.

    Another more widespread round of showers and storms, including the threat for some turning strong, will arrive Thursday into Friday. With repeated downpours and saturated soil, localized flash flooding is not out of the question.
