While severe thunderstorms stole the show Tuesday, it did not go unnoticed that Chicago’s high temperature of 75° broke the previous daily record high of 71° for November 10th set back in 1949 and that Rockford’s high temperature of 74° also broke its previous daily record high of 70° set in 2010.
Tuesday also marked the 7th consecutive day with high temperatures in the 70s in Chicago, and the 8th such consecutive day in Rockford, making this stretch of 70s the longest stretch of consecutive 70+ degree highs ever recorded in both cities in the month of November!
Now that our warm stretch of weather has ended, our final summary of this record-breaking November warmth can be found here: https://www.weather.gov/lot/2020NovemberWarmth
Quiet and cool weather will continue through the end of the week. However, another storm system looks to impact the region this weekend. This could result in another period of rain, especially Saturday afternoon and evening. Some windy conditions will also be possible Saturday night into Sunday.
