CHICAGO (CBS) — Temperatures were mild and pleasant with just a little bit of cloud cover in the midday hours Wednesday, but rain will be coming as a cold front arrives late in the day. […]
The temperature will be cooling down in Chicago Friday evening, and there could be a little rain or even a flurry or two overnight.
One year ago, Chicago was bracing for a blizzard that eventually shut down Lake Shore Drive and forced hundreds of drivers to abandon their cars on the lakefront. Today, there wasn’t a flake of snow in sight as the Chicago area reveled in temperatures nearing 60 degrees.
On this 45th anniversary of the infamous blizzard of 1967, conditions in Chicago are calm and mild, with temperatures expected to hit the 40s.
Christmas was less than two weeks ago, but you could easily be fooled into thinking it’s late April, as the temperature nears a record high for this wintertime date.
The forecast high for the day is a balmy 49, with sunshine and a few clouds.
Unseasonably pleasant temperatures in the 50s will give way Monday afternoon to conditions more typical for this time of year as a cold front comes through.
