Chilly spring about to warm up

Friday’s sunshine and gusty south winds combined to send afternoon temperatures into upper 60s bringing the city a rare mild day in what has been a dismally dreary, chilly and wet spring. It marked only the year’s eighth day of 60 degrees or higher weather, far below the average of 18 and last year’s incredible 36. The weekend looks to be a mild one, especially inland where highs should top out in the middle and upper 60s, though winds off of chilly Lake Michigan with keep lakeshore areas in the 50s. The real warmth will arrive on Monday and Tuesday as gusty south winds send the mercury soaring into the middle and upper 70s delivering the warmest weather since last October to the area.  Cool and wet conditions will return by the middle and end of next week as high temperatures in the lower 50s accompany another extended spell of chilly and rainy weather.
