Chicago weather: Temps to hit 80 today ahead of dramatic cooldown
CHICAGO - A big warmup followed by a dramatic temperature drop is on the way today.
Skies will be partly sunny with highs reaching around 80 degrees.
Then, a so-called "pneumonia front" slides down the lake knocking temps down 20-25 degrees in a matter of minutes. This process will happen between 5-8 p.m. hitting northeast Lake County first. No rain is expected with the front.
