The second-wettest spring in Chicago's history ended Sunday, clocking in at 427 mm of precipitation since March 1st. (The record was 445 mm set in 1983.)
Temperatures averaged just a bit above normal for the season, at 10.2°C (1.0°C above normal).
Today we might get a record high temperature. The forecast calls for 33°C, which would tie the record set in 1944.
Also, the Lake Michigan-Huron system finished its fifth straight month with record water levels, averaging about 930 mm above normal.
The Illinois State Climatologist office has more.
No larger message here. I just thought a post about the weather would be a good break from everything else.
