Chicago Weather: Fall-Like Saturday Temperatures Break 30-Year Record
Chicagoans were sent digging for their jackets over the weekend as temperatures plunged to record-setting lows.
Saturday's high temperature only hit 65 degrees at O'Hare International Airport, beating the previous record for the coldest high temperature recorded in Chicago on that day (69 degrees in 1981) by an astounding four degrees, WGN reports.
As ABC Chicago noted, Saturday's temperature was more typical of a mid-October day. The weekend was the coldest July weekend seen in the city in decades.
