CHICAGO — Steam rose off a quiet Lake Michigan while the sun rose Friday — and temperatures struggled to stay above zero degrees.
The day’s cold won’t last for long, with a big warmup expected this weekend.
Friday is expected to warm up to just 13 degrees, and it could feel as chilly as 10 degrees below zero at times. The day will be sunny with windy, with gusts up to 20 mph, according to the National Weather Service.
Temperatures will practically skyrocket this weekend, though, with Saturday and Sunday expected to hit 38 degrees and see at least partial sun.
The city could hit nearly 50 degrees Monday, though, and temperatures will hang around the 40s in the days after that, according to the weather agency.
