Chicago hits 90 degrees, hottest Memorial Day weekend in five years

What happened to spring in Chicago?

Sunday temperatures rose into the mid 90s across much of the Chicago area, making for an unusually warm start to the summer season. To most residents, it feels like we went straight from down coats to beach wear.

According to the National Weather Service, “Monday should, largely, be a case of wash, rinse and repeat as there will be little progression to the overall pattern. Other than perhaps a bit of debris cloud, mostly sunny, warm conditions are expected for tomorrow, with temperatures once again in the mid 90s.”

This is the first time since 2013 that temperatures in the city have hit 90 degrees before June.

Rain is likely Wednesday as remnants of Subtropical Storm Alberto make their way into the midwest, according to the weather service.
