July ended with the chilliest nine-day spell in 142 years of weather records.

The final nine days averaged more than 8 degrees below normal. That’s the coolest close to a July since weather records began here in 1871.

Today’s predicted high of 82 degrees will be the Chicago area’s warmest reading in more than a week. But don’t expect this warming to last.

The tenacious cooling pattern will regain its foothold as we head into August. The highs through next week Wednesday are expected to stay in the 70s.
