Brandon Weatherz: Warm start to November
The unseasonable warmth we’ve enjoyed the last several days is spilling into the start of November. Highs today reach low to mid-60s for most areas. The North Shore of Cook County stays in the 50s due to a southwest wind. Tonight will be mild with lows in mid-30s to mid-40s under mostly clear skies. Tomorrow will be warmer yet with daily record highs possible for communities away from Lake Superior. A southeast wind will keep temps a touch cooler in the Twin Ports and along the North Shore. Thursday will be another warm day with temps reaching to the 60s to near 70.
Scattered showers arrive Thursday evening and overnight as a cold front passes. This front will bring a return of cooler conditions, but temps will remain near and above average Friday through the weekend. This period also marks the start of a more active stretch of weather. Scattered showers will return from the south on Saturday and spill into Sunday. Yet another round of precipitation is possible Monday into Tuesday.
