    From Near-Record Warmth Back to Reality in Chicago

    Monday's high temperature in Chicago was just 1 degree shy of the record high of 71 degrees set in 1970.

    A cold front passed through the Great Lakes with showers Monday night, ushering in cooler air. The high will be in the mid-50s with partial sunshine on Tuesday.

    The downward trend of temperatures will continue through midweek with Wednesday's high only reaching the low 40s. For early December, a high in the lower 40s is closer to the normal high, which is in the upper 30s.

    Highs will stay in the 40s through late-week and into the weekend.
