Things are heating up in Chicago starting this week.  Highs will move into the mid-to-upper 80s as we move deeper into the workweek.  Some areas could hit 90-degrees Tuesday and Thursday.  Temperatures should dip back into the 70s this weekend.  Average highs for this time of year are in the upper 60s, which puts this week’s forecast 15-to-20-degrees above average.
