FORECAST IN DETAIL
A cool pattern has settled into the region -- with below-average temperatures forecast for the next 5 or so days. But we should be able to enjoy it since it will be mostly dry, with the highest chance for showers coming during the overnight period tomorrow night.
Today (Sunday): Fall days don't usually get much better than we'll see today. With a few clouds mixed in with abundant sunsine, temperatures should reach the upper 60s to near 70. Winds will be out of the north and light at less than 10 mph. Confidence: High
Tonight: We'll have another chilly night. Under partly cloudy skies, temperatures will generally drop into the mid-40s for a low, with the outer north and west suburbs near 40 and downtown areas closer to 50. All and all, a pretty characteristic mid-October night. Winds will continue to blow lightly from the north. Confidence: High

Tomorrow (Columbus Day): Dry weather should last long enough for you to enjoy the holiday and put you in a great mood to begin a short work week. A mostly sunny start will likely be replaced by increasing clouds through the day. The building clouds will inhibit temperatures from rising too much and we'll be looking for highs only in the low 60s. But we'll stay dry, so that counts for something. Winds will be out of the east at less than 10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: We can't hold off the threat of rain forever and tomorrow night looks like we might take a hit. Though the bulk of the rain should stay south of the metro area, we'll see a 50/50 chance of few showers moving through. Skies will be overcast through the night with lows reaching the lower 50s. Confidence: Medium
On Tuesday any lingering showers should begin to taper off by the early afternoon and we could salvage a halfway decent day in their wake. Skies will clear out behind the showers and we 'll return to highs near 70 degrees. Expect partly cloudy skies overnight, with lows in the mid-40s to around 50. Confidence: Medium
On Wednesday, temperatures will swing modestly downward. We'll see partly sunny skies and a slight (20%) chance for a light shower or two. Afternoon highs will likely top out in the lower 60s. Confidence: Medium
