Unseasonably, possibly record-setting cool weekend ahead

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

The coming weekend -- during which temperatures could get as low as the upper 40s at night -- could be one of the coolest July weekends on record for Chicago, according to the National Weather Service.

The weather service calculates average temperature for a weekend by adding Saturday's high and low to Sunday's high and low, and dividing by four.

The coldest July weekend recorded in Chicago was in 1909, when the average temperature July 3-4 was 59.8 degrees, according to the weather service. More recently, the fifth-coldest weekend was in 2000, when the average for July 22-23 was 62.5 degrees.

Saturday is expected to be mostly cloudy, with highs in the upper 60s, and lows dipping down to the upper 40s at night, the weather service says. On Sunday, highs could be in the lower 70s, with nighttime temperatures in the mid- to upper 50s.

High temperatures are not expected to reach 80 degrees again until Wednesday, according to the weather service.
