    After highs in the 70s Thursday afternoon, Chicago is in for a cool down throughout the weekend.

    Friday afternoon will bring a high of only 50 degrees with scattered clouds, before dropping down to the high 30s at night.

    Saturday may creep down into the high 40s with even more clouds. The nighttime will bring temperatures to the high 30s.

    Both days will be breezy, so those spending time outdoors should consider a light jacket. Precipitation is unlikely.
