What a day! Runners, walkers and cyclists hit Chicago's lakefront path as Loop workers lunched outside at Daley Plaza on the warmest day since November 17, 2013. But it won't last.

On Monday temperatures hit 67-degrees out at O'Hare and stayed in the 60's throughout the afternoon for the White Sox Home Opener 2014 at U.S. Cellular Field against the Atlanta Braves. It was a little bit cooler in the western suburbs.

The warmest day of 2014 so far in Chicago also brought a crowd of people out to enjoy the Lincoln Park Zoo. A number of restaurants also did a brisk lunchtime business as many workers decided to dine al fresco.

"We have a chance for a couple of isolated showers later tongiht," ABC7 Meteorologist Jerry Taft said. "Tuesday's high will be up near 50 degrees."

However, temperatures drop once again Tuesday evening. On Wednesday high temperatures will be struggling to reach 40-degrees.

Temperatures the rest of the week will stay in the 40's or low 50's - once again - averaging below normal.

The Chicago Cubs probably won't be as lucky for their home opener at Wrigley Field on Friday. Temperatures will top out in the low 50's and there is even a chance of rain at the friendly confines.
