The warming trend will continue Friday as the mercury rises to 76 degrees in the afternoon hours. The overnight low will be mild, hovering around 60 degrees.
There is a chance of showers and thunderstorms on Saturday, but those attending the Chicago Marathon on Sunday morning will have clearing skies. The high temperature will push to 70 degrees.
