CHICAGO (CBS)-- Record-breaking warmth is here and high temperatures will be near 30 degrees above average. 

Highs will reach the mid-60s Monday with sunny skies. 


Aside from the warmth, there's a high fire threat on Monday. High winds with gusts over 30 miles per hour and very dry conditions in the afternoon will lead to increased fire threats. Fires in these conditions could spread quickly.


Storm chances increase on Tuesday with afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Severe conditions are possible with threats including hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes. 


Temperatures drop to the 30s on Wednesday, but highs climb by Thursday.
