Friday was the warmest day so early in the year in Chicago's history with the temperature hitting 82 degrees, according to ABC7's meteorologist Mike Caplan.

The warm weather has broken more records. Friday marks the third time this month temperatures have hit the 80s -- more than in any March in Chicago history. What's more, the 80-degree temperatures came on consecutive days.

The record run may not be over yet.

"There is a very realistic chance we will hit 80 again tomorrow and possibly Sunday," Caplan said.
