about to start shifting. won't notice it this weekend, we have a gorgeous weekend on the way but we have cooler air on the march next week. we will tell you about that and the big wild card this weekend will be a front that settles down just about to the area. no weather with it to speak of except for a windshift across it and may set up a situation where we have east winds blowing near the lakefront and southwest winds inland so we will have the lakefront in the mid-60s tomorrow and the inland areas in the low 80s. look at this gorgeous sky. this is a time lapse and you can see not much going on there. a couple strands of cirrus stratus clouds. a gorgeous day. we had lows overnight in the 40s and 50s around the area. and at this hour at 72 schaumburg and naperville. dekalb at 78 and lincoln park at 77. keep in mind that this time of year the normal is 65. we were in bonus territory. only about half of the years beyond this date have produced 80-degree temperatures. yet apparently will be one of
them because we were head ford 80 today and in from the 80s away from the lake. 37 at o'hare. 72 at midway. note the southwest winds they will be blowing with gusto so no lake cooling today as was the case yesterday and will be again tomorrow. and we might get a little light lake breeze that will run over the beaches and keep things there just a tad cooler than the low 80s we are predicting inland. looks nice for the marathon and warmer than the runners would like it. 75 at shererville and waukegan at 75. there is the view from our southern suburbs from sauk village today. plot of the temperatures, they are uniform this warmth is homogeneous. it reaches across the area with equal intensity everywhere and there will be no lake cooling today so that's not going to change. see this big dome of warm air here? this thing has had a history of producing 80s and even near 90 on occasion the past week in the plains. we do have some cool air developing up to the north and that's a factor because it comes spilling into the area next week. but we will worry about that
when that happens. at the moment we have 70s not only here but right up to the shores of lakes huron and superior up to the north. it's 73 at marquette and almost everybody in the mid west boasts 24 hour temperature increases. this air mass is warming up through the heartland as cooler air and this is part of a weather system that's brought those unusual tornadoes and the last week to arizona and it's all over there. no t-s in arizona. beautiful sunny skies yesterday and again today. there are some rain showers in the upper mid west and that thing could swipe us with a shower or thundershower. perhaps on columbus day on monday. not until then. winds are west at 12. we have a 28% humidity. this air is dry and the water temperatures at 60 with just low mold spore counts in the area. well, it doesn't get much better than this. look at this area of sunshine. but coming on to the -- into the picture here with time will be this weather system. you can see it's spinning across the rockies.
you know, i mentioned once in awhile you get a meteorology a kicker. this arc of clouds there, we had a blocking patter than kept the weather in place locked in the rains out to the west. rains in the northeast and yet we were high and dry here in the mid west. this big storm traveling across the pacific ocean is to start rearranging the jet stream. takes that system that's raining in the west. brings a little peace of that eastward. not much but what happens over the coming week is a big ridge develops. look at this flow from the northwest that develops next week. that will start plugging some -- into that cool air we were showing up in canada and pushing it southward. we could have the coolest air of the season coming in although it seems like the whole thing is progressive so it will hit and then weekend again later next week but the middle and end of next week could be cool. radar showing the showers in the western plains and back into the rockies. they tend to cluster up against the mountain ranges. but that is the eastbound system that could bring us a
shower on monday. there might be isolated shower in spots late sunday or sunday night. for the most part this weekend looks absolutely beautiful. this afternoon sunny and warmer. gusty west and southwest winds. high temperature 80. you know what sunni is? >> sure, sure. southwest wind -- >> you are in worse shape than i thought. 11 to 22 miles per hour. and we look for -- those winds to pick up and that's going to push that warm air right up to the lakefront. tonight clear. mild actually by october standards. temperatures in the 50s. and then sunny and warm tomorrow. lake winds and thesesesesare no deal. just enough to cool the lakeshore but they could keep areas north toward walk or kenosha in the mid-60s while low 70s occur at grant park and 81 occurs west and southwest and south suburbs. winds are southeast tomorrow, 5 to 14 and sign and warm for the
marathon on sunday. a high of 82. the marathon will start with a 15 -- isn't that something? that's in the afternoon. we could do that. isn't that something? check yesterday, the harbors here open october 31. the mariners have no reason to stash the boats. they will be out there. >> you know what kind of ryan would start if you and i showed up and sean at the beach? >> boy that would frighten the children. >> i know. >> well, both in their speedos. >> that would be quite a sight. that's for sure. >> we don't want that. >> happy friday. our trivia question today, tom, do you know the answer? which is not one of the four main types of lettuce? butter head? crisp head? loose leaf or red leaf? we will have the answer ahead on the wgn midday news. copd makes it hard for me to breathe.
