More like Bear weather today than baseball weather. Bring your winter jackets to the Sox home opener today.
After back to back 59° highs at O’Hare Saturday and Sunday we will see a dramatic drop in temperatures today. Highs will only reach into the upper 30s so it will feel more like February than the start of April. Hang in there. Both the 6-10 day outlook and the 8-14 day outlook (below image) offer the hope for a big warm up as we approach the middle of the month. Most of the eastern half of the US is outlooked for above average temperatures for the period.
Thank goodness we can say goodbye to March. 25 of 31 days were below average. The average temperature was 32.6°, more than 5° below average and more than 20° colder than last March!
