Chicago, IL – As Sunday’s weather brings thunderstorms targeting areas south of I-80, the Chicago metropolitan area prepares for a swift turnaround.

According to the National Weather Service, the late-week tranquility will be interrupted by rain showers and thunderstorms primarily confined to the southern regions. These conditions are anticipated to bring cool temperatures and gusty southeast winds reaching up to 35 mph.

Eclipse aficionados have reason to celebrate as the tempestuous weather is set to clear overnight. Monday promises predominantly sunny skies, creating optimal conditions for the highly anticipated solar eclipse. Local organizations and astronomy clubs have scheduled public viewing events, inviting the community to witness the eclipse together under favorable weather conditions.

Temperatures on eclipse day will rise to a pleasant range of 62 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit, accompanied by gentle breezes. While outdoor activities are encouraged for the start of the week, residents should plan for the return of rain showers by mid-week, with cooler temperatures hovering near the lakeside areas. Community members are advised to stay informed on the evolving weather patterns and enjoy the brief respite provided by Monday’s astronomical showcase.
