SHARE Monday night to bring fall-like weather after summer-like day

After a mild weekend and summery Monday temperatures, an evening cold front will bring a drizzly reminder that autumn is here.

A “strong cold front” will move south over the Chicago area Monday evening, bringing gusty winds, “rapidly falling” temperatures and the possibility of light rain, according to the National Weather Service.

Temperatures in the mid-70s at 5 p.m. will drop to the mid- or upper 50s by 8 p.m.

Forecasters predict the front will bring low temperatures in the upper 40s and wind gusts up to 35 mph overnight, according to the weather service. Downtown, lows will dip into the lower 50s.

Temperatures, which approached 80 on Monday, will only make it to 60 degrees on Tuesday, but should bounce back to the 70s on Wednesday and Thursday, forecasters predict.
