Unusually warm weather for Monday, grim temps for Halloween

SHARE Unusually warm weather for Monday, grim temps for Halloween

The start of the work week will come with some unusually warm weather Monday, as temperatures are expected to hit the high 70s in Chicago.

As the day winds down, Chicago could see thunderstorms and moderate winds in the evening, the National Weather Service said. Temperatures are expected to drop into the low 60s Tuesday, and should continue to fall leading into the weekend.

And while the final weeks of October have been unusually warm, temperatures may hit “freezing” as Halloween weekend approaches, Jamie Enderlen of the National Weather Service said.

“Halloween temperatures will be in the mid 30s in the downtown areas and could be pushing 32 degrees in outlying areas,” Enderlen said.
