CHICAGO (CBS) — It has been 50 years since temperatures were this cold this late in the season in Chicago, but here we go again – temperatures near zero for what many Chicagoans are hoping will be the last time this winter.
“I’m definitely tired of it,” said Peter Beckwith of Edgewater, who went jogging Tuesday, and doesn’t expect to again till the end of the week, when temperatures edge a bit closer to normal.
The normal high temperature for late February 38 to 40 degrees, and the normal low is 22 to 24 degrees — which Chicago likely won’t even see as a high until early next week. The average temperature this time of year is 30 to 32 degrees.
