Depending on tomorrow's weather, this month might be the coldest February in Chicago history:
As of Friday morning, the average temperature for the month was -9.33°C, surpassing the average of -9.27°C in 1936 that is currently ranked the second coldest February, according to the National Weather Service.
Could Chicago see its coldest February ever? That record, an average of -9.67°C, was set way back in 1875.
This month currently ranks as the third snowiest February on record with 671 mm recorded at O'Hare International Airport. The second snowiest February was back in 1896 with 706 mm, according to the weather service.
We're overjoyed, really, this is a great honor.
