A noticeably cooler end to the weekend is shaping up for Chicago, replacing the warmth from Saturday.

Temperatures will be held to around the 70-degree mark on Sunday, which is nearly 15 degrees below Saturday's high. A cool breeze will also blow off of Lake Michigan.

Any lingering shower around Sunday morning will be gone and some sunshine will return by the time the Cubs host the Miami Marlins at Wrigley Field Sunday afternoon.

The dry weather to close out the weekend will hold through Monday. The new week, however, will start on a cooler-than-normal note for mid-June with a high in the lower 70s expected.
