I’m like any other mom you’d encounter. I fret, I wipe and I play. But when it comes to the inevitable “how” and “why” science questions I get from my three young kids, I am [...]
From your smartphone to your computer, and even your TV, the technology around us is constantly changing, and weather forecasting is no different. CBS 2 has a brand new, state-of-the-art Mobile Weather Lab, which brings the forecasting right into your neighborhood.
Now that spring has sprung, our frozen winter seems like a distant memory, until you step outside to take a look at your garden.
Believe it or not, this wild winter weather does have some benefits.
CBS 2 Meteorologist Megan Glaros takes a look at some of the oddest phenomena that have occurred this winter.
Since 2010, there have been more than 250 major disasters declared in the U.S.- floods, tornadoes, fires-and all of us need to be prepared.
Don’t get used to the sunny skies and pleasant temperatures that were dominating the Chicago area in the midday hours.
Expect cooler temperatures today with a high of 70 degrees and a low of 50.
CHICAGO (CBS) — The clouds that dominated the skies of Chicago Wednesday morning will give way to sunshine as the day goes on, as temperatures remain seasonal and comfortable. CBS 2 Meteorologist Megan Glaros says [...]
The clouds that dominated the area Tuesday morning will break in the afternoon, while highs reach a comfortable 76 degrees.
Rain will fall intermittently throughout this chilly, dreary day.
The sun is shining brightly and temperatures will be comfortable Thursday afternoon, but you can be sure that the sweltering summer is a memory now.
You might have found yourself shivering if you didn’t put on a jacket this morning, and if you brought the wrong kind of hat, the wind might have sent it flying off your head.
The gloomy skies and bone-chilling rain have moved on their way, and a beautiful Friday is set to give way to a beautiful weekend.
The week has been sunny, clear and temperate so far, but all good things must come to an end.
CBS 2 Meteorologist Megan Glaros says we can expect “nearly perfect sunshine” Wednesday afternoon, as the highs climb into the upper 80s.
It may seem like summer is behind us now, but it certainly won’t feel like it Tuesday afternoon.
The showers that made this Friday morning gloomy have largely moved on their way, but look for a major drop in the temperature accompanying the sunny skies when the weekend begins.
A round of storms overnight ripped down some trees in the Chicago area, and more storms hit the area just in time for the morning rush.
If you’re an early-shifter, you might have gotten drenched by pouring rain on the way to work Tuesday. You won’t have that problem again for the rest of the day. But you’d be well advised to bring your umbrella with you on Wednesday.
