Today's Weather: Splendid

It's a splendid day to walk about outside or eat lunch on a bench in a park somewhere...or just play hooky from work again, but we can't condone that. Not today, anyway. The cool temps that forced coats on us this morning are already rebounding and it'll warm up to the lower 70s in most parts of the area under clear, sunny skies. Partly cloudy skies remain in place overnight as lows drop into the mid-50's. Maybe swing by the Art Institute, which is offering free admission this week. It is International Museum Day, after all.
