CHICAGO (CBS) — After a mild Labor Day weekend, a big jump in temperatures is expected on Tuesday, with gusty breezes, before a cold front possibly brings afternoon thunderstorms.
Temperatures will heat up quickly during the day, as we wait for the storms alter in the day. Temperatures will climb to a high near 87, with gusty breezes topping 40 mph.
The window for stronger thunderstorms will be between 1 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Storms will move in from the northwest to the southeast across the Chicago area.
The greatest risk is for damaging wind, but a tornado or two cannot be ruled out.
Storms will wrap up by Tuesday evening as skies clear.
It will be much cooler by Wednesday morning, with temperatures dropping to the 50s overnight.
Quiet weather continues through the week’s end, and the heat starts to build again by Friday.
