LOGAN SQUARE — Spring will finally rear its head in Chicago this week.

The week will start off with sun and temperatures in the 40s, and Thursday could see the thermometer hit 60, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures in the 40s are normal for this time of year, said Amy Seeley, a National Weather Service meteorologist, but Chicago’s been hit by snow, chilly winds and low temperatures for much of March.

The week will start with a high temperature of 39 degrees Monday. It’ll get warmer every day after that, even hitting 52 degrees on Wednesday. That day will also see rain and possibly a thunderstorm.

But Thursday will be the warmest day of the week with an expected high temperature of 63 degrees in Chicago, according to the National Weather Service. Rain showers are possible throughout the day.

After that, temperatures fall to just 39 degrees Friday and snow and rain will be possible, according to the National Weather Service. The weekend is expected to hit the high 30s and low 40s and be sunny.
