October 12, 2013; 4:30 AM
This week bears a stark contrast to last week in Chicago, when severe weather moved through the city with heavy rain and damaging winds. Only warmth and sunshine are in the forecast through the remainder of the workweek.
The warming trend will continue Friday as the mercury rises to 76 degrees in the afternoon hours. The overnight low will be mild, hovering around 60 degrees.
There is a chance of showers and thunderstorms on Saturday, but those attending the Chicago Marathon on Sunday morning will have clearing skies. The high temperature will push to 70 degrees.
The next chance of rain and storms will be Monday night into Tuesday. Some of the rain may be heavy at times.
