Currently in Chicago — July 7th, 2022

The weather, currently.

Next good chance of rain is Friday.

Takeaways for Chicago's weather:

1. Only Spotty Showers Thursday

2. Brief Cooler Pattern Coming

3. Weekend Looks Wonderful

Most of Thursday should be dry with only a spotty shower possible.  More clouds than sun and seasonably warm with highs in the middle 80s but cooler lakeside.  Scattered showers and thunderstorms early and late Friday but some dry hours too as highs slide back into the lower 70s.  We warm into the middle 70s with plenty of sunshine Saturday and the sun keeps coming Sunday as highs warm back into the lower 80s.  Cooler lakeside all weekend.  Warmer early next week with highs near 90 degrees by Monday.
