CHICAGO — Beautiful weather brought folks out of hibernations Sunday ahead of the Big Game.

“You couldn’t ask for better weather,” said Brandon Knolden, a Chicagoan out and about near Montrose Beach.

Temperatures in Chicago reached a high of 52 degrees Sunday, which is unseasonably warm, but still 10 degrees short of the all-time high of 62 experienced in Chicago all the way back in 1887.
