We're having our sixth consecutive day of cloudless skies and warm temperatures. No one's complaining:
Thursday's fifth consecutive 100 percent sunny day was the longest such spell of any here over the past 18 years
There wasn't a cloud in the sky Thursday. It led to Chicago being credited with 100 percent of its possible sunshine for a fifth consecutive day. A check of weather records here reveals it's the first set of five completely sunny days in 18 years.
In an average year, 46 days (13 percent of them) in Chicago record 100 percent of their possible sun. Conversely, 44 days (12 percent) see no sun because of clouds.
The sun and warmth are expected to continue through Wednesday. Why, then, am I sitting inside?
