CHICAGO (CBS) — Sunday was the hottest day of the year so far for Chicago, as the area reached 80 degrees for the first time this year. The record temperature is 85 degrees and was set in 2003.

Breezes from the lake will draw cooler air into the area and temperatures near the lake will drop.

Monday will be sunny and calm, but not as warm, with highs in the low 70s. A lake breeze helps keep the weather cooler along the shoreline.

A storm threat calls for a Weather Alert Day on Tuesday. Models slow the forward speed of the storm system. Lake wind gusts up to 30 mph will likely keep temperatures in the 60s throughout the area. Moreover, the warm front is slowly moving northwards.

The highest time frame for severe weather appears to be from dusk to midnight on Tuesday. All hazards are possible, including damaging winds, large hail and possible tornadoes.

The area may even experience heavy thunderstorms Wednesday morning as the storm complex hangs overhead.

Once it leaves, a cooler northwesterly gust will keep temperatures colder than normal over the weekend, especially given the wind.

The timing of severe weather for Tuesday could still change as the system takes shape and focuses on Chicago.

Prediction

SUNDAY EVENING: Clear. LOW: 50

MONDAY: Sunny. HIGH: 75, cooler lakeside

TUESDAY: Storm threat, windy. HIGH: 68
