    Thunderstorms will arrive mainly late in the day Monday but they could cause problems for the Chicago Cubs-Arizona Diamondbacks game at Wrigley Field. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. CDT.

    The storms could disrupt any other outdoor activities. Golfers should quickly exit courses if they hear thunder; the same will apply for other outside sporting events.

    Motorists should be on the lookout for high water on highways.

    Behind the thunderstorms, it will be noticeably cooler on Tuesday with a high in the upper 50s.

    Temperatures will warm up again, this time in the upper 60s, by the end of the week but another chance of rain and storms is possible Thursday.
