    The official start of fall on Sunday was cool in Chicago, but temperatures will be on the rise for midweek.

    Dry weather and sunshine began on Saturday as highs push into the mid-60s before dropping to the low 50s at night.

    Sunday brought lots of sunshine and highs near 65 degrees, which is about 8 degrees below average for the second half of September.

    The weekend will precede more sunshine for the workweek and temperatures will be warming up throughout the week.

    Temperatures on Monday and Tuesday will still be below average with highs near 70 degrees. Skies will remain sunny for the evening games at Wrigley Field as the Chicago Cubs take on the Pittsburgh Pirates.

    High pressure over the Great Lakes and Northeast will keep rain out of the area until Friday.

    Those headed to the Chicago White Sox game on Friday evening will experience warm temperatures but a shower or two in the area could create some wet weather for fans.
