After the coldest morning of the autumn so far, temperatures will rebound 30 degrees or more to seasonable levels by Wednesday afternoon.
Temperatures started the day Monday in the mid-30s around the city, but in the northern and western suburbs dropped into the 20s.
The high is forecast to reach the low 60s on Wednesday, which is close to normal.
Temperatures may again reach the low 60s Thursday ahead of a cool front.
The front will approach the area Thursday with some rain. Blustery and cool conditions will follow Thursday night and Friday.
The air behind that front is not as chilly as the start of this week. While it will get blustery behind the front on Friday, winds will not be quite as strong as which occurred last Friday. Still some flight delays are possible due to crosswinds on some of the runways.
