LOGAN SQUARE — Warm weather is coming to the city this weekend.

Chicago’s had a dismal, rainy start to the week, but temperatures are expected to rise — and they could even hit the 80s Sunday and stay in the high 70s for Memorial Day, according to the National Weather Service.

Wednesday is expected to be partly sunny but with a high of just 55 degrees. It’ll be windy with gusts of up to 20 mph.

Thursday will stay partly sunny and see temperatures climb to 59 degrees. It’ll get even warmer Friday, when there’s an expected high of 62 degrees.

Saturday has a chance for rain in the afternoon, but the day will be partly sunny with a high of 75 degrees.

Sunday could get as hot as 81 degrees, though there’s also a chance for rain then.

The city will cool off only slightly Monday, when the expected high is 77 degrees. Showers and thunderstorms are likely for the holiday, though.
