Share post:

Chicago, IL — The Windy City is in for a week of dramatic weather shifts, according to the National Weather Service. The week kicks off with an idyllic May day, boasting a mix of sunshine and clouds, with daytime temperatures comfortably settled in the low to mid-70s. Residents near Lake Michigan will experience slightly cooler conditions, with temperatures hovering in the upper 50s.

However, this tranquil weather is just the calm before the storm. By Thursday afternoon, the forecast takes a turn as rain and storm chances surge, continuing through to Saturday. The weather pattern promises a dynamic mix of potentially heavy rainfall interspersed with warmer, sunnier intervals.

Despite the looming storms, temperatures are set to climb throughout the region, peaking between 72-81°F on Saturday. The week concludes on a brighter note on Sunday, with highs reaching the upper 70s to low 80s, providing a brief respite before the new week begins.

Chicagoans should stay prepared for quick weather changes and plan accordingly for outdoor activities this weekend, keeping an eye on the skies and local weather updates.
