Widespread showers, thundersto­rms expected


Tuesday’s low8e0sts:

Some Chicago-area locations could end up with 2 inches or more rain in the next 24 to 48 hours, as the center of low pressure crosses the Mississipp­i River out of Iowa on Wednesday, and passes overhead Wednesday night. The low pressure will slowly ease off to the east Thursday, only to be reinforced by an upper-air disturbanc­e that will likely trigger more showers/ thundersto­rms before ending from the west Thursday night.

Friday we will transition into high pressure that looks to dominate over the coming weekend, setting the stage for a rain-free Air and Water Show. Under mostly sunny skies, afternoon temperatur­es Saturday and Sunday project to reach the middle 80s well inland, peaking more in the lower 80s along the lakefront.
