Temperatures hit a record high in Chicago, string of 70-degree days could also set a record

Weather

CHICAGO — The high temperature of 76 degrees registered at Chicago’s official O’Hare field observing site Sunday afternoon established a new record high for November 8, exceeding the old record of 73 set 89 years ago in 1931.

This also marked the fifth consecutive day with a temperature of 70 degrees or higher, tying the old record of five-straight 70-degree days, which was set November 15 – 19, 1953. 

A forecasted high of 75 degrees Monday would not only break the old record of 74 degrees set back on November 9, 1999, but also establish a new record of six consecutive 70-degree days in November. 

At this point, a record high of 72 degrees is also in the forecast for Tuesday (the old record for November 10 is 71, set in 1949), and in that case the record string of 70-degree days would extend to seven.
