Through Tuesday night…
No forecast concerns expected. Tuesday will be similar to today though with warmer temps and perhaps winds just a bit stronger than today. Highs expected to reach the middle 70s everywhere Tuesday with a few upper 70s possible. Still a limited fire danger Tuesday with some uncertainty for dewpoints which guidance shows in the mid 40s. Lows tonight back into the 40s for much of the area, warmer in Chicago. Tuesday night looks to be rather mild with lows mainly in the 50s areawide.
