CHICAGO - Put this one in the record books too: Our low on Wednesday was 74°.
That’s not only a record high minimum for May 11, it’s also the warmest daily low EVER so early in the year.
Thursday’s record high is 92°.
Meteorologist Mike Caplan says we most likely will not quite get there, but another 90° is likely.
Humidity levels will be very high Thursday morning but should drop somewhat in the afternoon.
It will once again be cooler near the lake.
A hazy sunshine will occur once again due to fires to our southwest.
Friday will be very warm again with upper 80s under mostly sunny skies.
During the afternoon and evening, a few storms are possible and its possible some could be strong with a damaging wind/hail threat.
The weekend won’t be as warm, but 80° is possible Saturday — still about 10 degrees warmer than normal for mid-May.
Showers are possible both days, but neither day looks to have much rainfall.
