Politics, Weather, Photography, and the Dog
Sunday 26 January 2014

The worst winter in 30 years continues in Chicago. This morning we woke up to another 50 mm of snow on the ground (fortunately light and fluffy) and -12°C cold. The good news: today the forecast calls for a seasonable -3°C. Then, starting around 3pm, this happens (click to expand):

If you compare that forecast to the one on January 4th, you will see that today's has a lower bottom.

Yes, not content to give us the coldest temperatures recorded in Chicago since 1995 already, this winter is about to give us, quite possibly, the coldest temperatures recorded in Chicago since 1983. (In fairness, January 1994 sucked.)

I have lived through the coldest day ever in Chicago, 20 January 1985, when the ambient air temperature bottomed out at -33°C, but the howling winds gave us a flesh-stripping -51°C. Tomorrow won't be like that. But it won't be like mid-June, either.
