Warm End To Week Followed By Cooler Weekend

The 80s will keep on coming through Friday. Average highs for early June are around 76°. Highs today and tomorrow will be running about 10° above that. The exception again will be along the lakefront today with highs only in the 70s. Friday's heat will be felt right up to the shore with a west wind helping to push highs to near 90°.

A cold front will cross through northern Illinois later Friday setting us up for a cooler weekend. Highs will mainly be in the lower to middle 70s but only 60s along the lakefront.

With the arrival of the front on Friday there could be a few scattered showers or thunderstorms but most of the day will be dry. The next good chance of rain doesn't come until later Tuesday into early Wednesday morning. Rainfall could be heavy during this period. The remnants of tropical storm Cristobal could add some moisture to the mix.

Starting to pick up a signal that the middle of the month by be on the cool side compared to average. Both the 6-10 day and 8-14 day temperature probability forecast has us outlooked for cooler than average temperatures overall from June 9th through June 17th.

That cool trend could continue through the end of the month. The multi-model ensemble temperature anomaly forecast has a strong signal for cooler than average temperatures overall for the midwest for the week ending on June 26th.

Here is my 7 day forecast:

Today: Partly to mostly sunny High: 86 (73 Lakefront)

Friday: Sun & cloud mix, pm sct. shower/t-storm? Low: 67 High: 87

Saturday: Mostly sunny Low: 61 High: 75 ( 66 Lakefront)

Sunday: Partly to mostly sunny Low: 56 High: 77 (68 Lakefront)

Monday: Mostly sunny Low: 59 High: 83 (75 Lakefront)

Tuesday: Partly sunny, pm sct. shwrs/t-storms Low: 60 High: 87 (83 Lakefront)

Wednesday: A.M. shower?, partly to mostly sunny Low: 66 High: 79
