    Stormy Weekend in Store for Chicago

    By By Jordan Root, Meteorologist

    Temperatures will be on the rise through the rest of the weekend across the Chicago area but storms will plague the region.

    Thermometers will begin climbing into the mid-80s into the weekend.

    With the heat and humidity building in, an uptick in storms is expected. The weekend is looking rather unsettled.


    Those who plan on heading over to Wrigley Field to watch the Cubs take on the Braves this weekend may run into rain delays.

    In addition to highs, overnight lows will be on the rise as well, creeping into the upper 60s by the time Saturday rolls around.

    Overall, July has started off cooler than normal for Chicago, with high temperatures only reaching above the average of 84 twice. Those came earlier this week.

    The days leading up to the end of the week will be more on the pleasant side with humidity remaining low and temperatures cooler than normal.

    As thunderstorms persist Saturday and Sunday, cooler weather is in store beginning Tuesday.

    Looking into next week, a stretch of cooler weather is expected as Typhoon Neoguri in the Pacific forces a cooling effect on the weather in the Midwest and East.
