The current weather is not only as good as it gets in late July, but pretty much at any time of the year. More on the way with a splendid night tonight and picture perfect Friday to close out the work week.
Through Tonight: Dine al fresco if you can! We’re in the delightful 70s through this evening but all of us drop at least into the low-to-mid 60s by early morning. A few of the cooler outlying areas to the north and west dip into upper 50s. Turn off the A/C and enjoy. Skies are mostly clear and winds are light.
Tomorrow (Friday): Wow! Gorgeous sunshine, low humidity and comfortably warm temperatures for a stroll or dip in the pool (though it may feel cool when you get out of last week’s heated water!). Highs reach the low-to-mid 80s, with light winds from the west.
Coolest weather in the world? Tom Skilling, meteorologist at WGN in Chicago, posted this model simulation of temperatures – compared to normal – over the globe averaged over the next five days. The central and eastern U.S. stand out among the coolest spots – relative to average – in the world. Given it’s around the hottest part of summer, good timing!
