Cecily Tynan with the AcuWeather Forecast

It was another cloudy, cool and damp day. Yesterday's high was 63. Today's high hit 68. This is the first time since May when we had two days in a row in the 60s.

TONIGHT: Cloudy skies persist with some scattered evening showers and steadier rain developing later at night. The axis of heaviest rain looks to stay to our west or brush our western suburbs with the best period of seeing the steady rain from midnight into the morning rush. The low is 62.

TUESDAY: The heaviest rain looks to stay to our west and just brush our western suburbs during the early morning. Rain will likely continue into the first part of the day and then turn more showery for the afternoon. The high will rebound to 78 winds shift to the southeast and then south, bringing much more humid air with dew points near 70. Total rainfall is on the order of 1/2" to 1", with the highest totals in the northwest suburbs.

WEDNESDAY: Low pressure from the Great Lakes will lift into southeastern Canada pulling a fall cold front through the Northeast. Out ahead of it, we'll see breaks of sun in the warm sector and dewpoints will be up in the low 70s, making for a very muggy late September day. The high climbs to 84, around 10 degrees above normal. This will give us a decent amount of instability and we could be tracking some strong to scattered severe thunderstorms during the evening hours.

THURSDAY: Cooler air moves in behind Wednesday night's cold front on Thursday. We'll still be dealing with a decent amount of clouds, but some breaks of sun are likely. Dewpoints fall back into the much more comfortable upper 50s and the high falls to 74.

FRIDAY: It's partly sunny with a very spotty shower here and there and a high around 76.

SATURDAY: This is looking like a great day, with partly sunny skies and a seasonable, pleasant high around 76.

SUNDAY: Partly sunny with a seasonable high of 75.

MONDAY: Cloudy skies appear to build in with a shower possible, as well. The high is 74.
