Prepare to bundle up, Chicago. A record-breaking stretch of November temperatures in the 70s will be swept away Tuesday night by rain and 45 mph gusts.

The unseasonable warm temperatures are expected to plummet Tuesday evening to 36 degrees —which is about normal for the season —according to the National Weather Service.

“Our extraordinary stretch of November warmth continues [Monday], but will come to an abrupt end with a strong cold front passage Tuesday afternoon and evening,” the weather service said on Twitter.

The warm weather has broken at least two Chicago-area records.

Monday is the sixth consecutive day in the 70s, which is now the longest consecutive stretch of 70s in the month of November, the weather service said.

By 10 a.m. Monday, temperatures had reached 70 degrees at O’Hare International Airport, breaking the previous five-day, 70-plus-degree stretch set in 1953.

Sunday’s high of 76 degrees was the warmest Nov. 8 on record in Chicago —breaking the record set in 1931 — and was among the 10 hottest November days since record-keeping began in 1871.
