Really feeling like fall

Takeaways for Chicago's weather:

1. Really Feeling Like Fall

2. Frost Possible Early Wednesday

We're in store for a cooler than average, but terrific Tuesday with plenty of sunshine and highs near 60°F. We could wake up to patchy frost well inland Wednesday morning, as lows dip into the middle to upper 30s. There will be a few showers near the lake Wednesday, but otherwise, just partly cloudy skies with highs falling into the upper 50s. It will be mostly sunny with lower 60s for highs Thursday, and then sunny Friday with highs in the upper 60s. It'll be a warmer weekend with highs near 70°F or warmer.

Hurricane Ian rapidly intensifying as it heads toward Cuba and Florida
Hurricane Ian barrels towards western Cuba. Then, it’s on track to make landfall in Florida, just north of Tampa Bay.

“Hurricane Ian is rapidly intensifying as it barrels towards western Cuba, then later, Florida, just north of Tampa Bay. Cuba is expecting life-threatening storm surges and hurricane-force winds Monday night.

The storm may slow slightly as it tracks through the Gulf of Mexico — however this is not necessarily good news — as a slower storm has the potential to make flooding worse on the Gulf Coast of Florida.

Major hurricanes hitting the Tampa Bay region directly, are fairly rare. In fact, only five major hurricanes have tracked within 50 miles of the area since 1851.”
