Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

For the second consecutive month, the average temperature ended up below normal at Chicago. The last time this happened was April and May of 2011. This is just another example of how warm it's been around the Chicago area over the last year.

The average high temperature for October was 60.5 degrees which is -1.8 below normal.

The average low temperature for October was 42.4 degrees which is -0.4 below normal.

Therefore, the average temperature for the month was 51.5 degrees exactly 1.0 degree cooler than normal.

The only thing normal about October was the amount of rain that fell. O'Hare received 3.15" which is exactly where we should be for the month.

No records were tied or broken at Chicago for the month of October.

The long range forecast for the entire month of November calls for near normal temperatures along with near normal amounts of precipitation. See images below courtesy of NOAA.
