The 2022 Bank of America Chicago Marathon will take place on Sunday morning, and runners will be greeted with sunny and cool conditions as they hit the course.

According to the NBC 5 Storm Team, clear skies are expected at the start of the race Sunday morning, with a consistent breeze from the southeast at 10 to 15 miles per hour.

The real story of the morning will be the cold temperatures, with the mercury only touching the mid-40s when runners hit the course.

Those temperatures are expected to climb steadily throughout the morning, potentially reaching into the 60s by noon, according to forecast models.

Temperatures will continue to rise into the mid-60s at 2 pm, giving athletes pleasant conditions as they head toward the finish line.

Similar conditions are expected Monday, with lows only reaching the 50s in Chicago and the 40s elsewhere, and highs in the mid-60s and heading toward 70 degrees in some places.

The end of late Tuesday will mark the end of the warmer weather trend, with high temperatures dropping into the mid-50s by Thursday, according to extended forecast models.
