Ask Tom Why
Did Chicago’s 2018 precipitation set a new record?
Books close on cloudiest February in 57 years; meteorological winter 2018-19 a “statistical wash”—temps/snow finish near normal; March, Chicago’s fastest warming month, to host a blustery late-season arctic blast by Sunday night
Cold weather continues its winter break; westerly upper winds keep “mild” air coming through next week—daily temps 6 to 13-degrees above normal; precip nil until late week; sub-32-deg highs to cover less than 11% of the country
Rainy, seasonably mild Thursday
Year’s warmest weather likely this week, with temps. in the 60s
Chill to tighten its grip on Chicago; high temps plunge 26 to 31-degrees below normal Monday & Tuesday amid strengthening “NW” winds—chills 10 to 20-below by Monday morning; March a study in meteorological contrasts
Pattern shift nixes Lower 48 storm threat—“atmospheric river’s” heavy precip & storms take aim at Alaska instead; temps warm 18 of past 23 days post “below-normal” readings; weekend 60-degrees not out of the question
It’s official—Mt. Carroll’s 38-below in the polar vortex Jan. 31st gets “thumbs-up” as Illinois’ new state low temp; powerful weekend storm to sweep in with rain then high winds here: Big Midwest snows north and new round of severe weather south
Milder air expected as the weekend approaches
7th day here with 40s and an 8th straight day above normal; temps to flirt with 50-deg Wednesday; windy Pacific storm to jump the Rockies and redevelop on the Gulf Coast; its powerful winds to rake Chicago Thursday night/Friday
Ask Tom Why
How many days has the temperature reached or exceeded normal?
Temps take plunge but more wintry weather due by weekend
