Chicago's 80 degree stretch ended Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Chicago longest stretch of consecutive days in the 80s ended Tuesday at 12.

This is not only the longest stretch of the meteorological summer, but the longest since last July when O'Hare reached at least 80 degrees or higher 19 straight days. That streak began on July 4 and ended July 22.

Since June 1, Chicago has seen two days in the 60s, 24 days in the 70s, 44 days in the 80s, and only 3 days in the 90s.

Last summer produced 12 days in the 90s.

There is a very good chance that Chicago will end up with less than 10 days in the 90 degree or higher category this summer. This has happened only four times since 2000 (2000, 2004, 2008, & 2009).

The next 7 days calls for highs mainly in the 70s and 80s with days 8 through 14 expected to be near normal, which for this time of the year is around 82 degrees.
