It's Columbus Day, which means schools and many government offices are closed today; if you were looking to renew your drivers license you're SOL until Tuesday. Get lost like Columbus under a threat of rain and mild temperatures. Right now it's hazy with the official temperature reading at O'Hare is near Skilling's forecast high of 65 degrees.

The rain is expected to begin later this morning, turning into thunderstorms by the evening rush and continuing this evening and overnight. The winds will pick up, making for some gusty showers in parts.
