... Overall lack of 90 degree heat so far this year and a look back at July 2012...
Tuesday was only the 3rd official 90 degree day of the year at Chicago-o'hare and 2nd in Rockford. It was the first 90 degree day of July for both locations. The long term average for 90 degree days in July is 8 in Rockford and 6 in Chicago. There are no 90 degree high temperatures forecast in the next several days. Additionally... the 6 to 10 day outlook from the climate prediction center is indicating high probabilities for below normal temperatures. Therefore... it is distinctly possible if not likely that there will be no more 90 degree days this July for the area.
Here are some eye-opening stats in the 90 degree department showing just how different this July has been from the searingly hot conditions in July 2012. Including July 23rd... there had already been 18 90+ degree days in Rockford and 16 in Chicago. The month finished with 21 90+ degree days in Rockford and 18 in Chicago. Of these... there were 5 days of 100 degrees or higher in Rockford and 3 100+ days in Chicago. Overall... may through September 2012 had an incredible 49 90+ days in Rockford and 46 in Chicago.
The 1-month outlook for August and the 3-month outlook including August... September and October both favor cooler than normal conditions. Thus given the lack of 90 degree heat so far this year... chances are increasing for this year to join 2000... 2004... 2008 and 2009 as the only years since 2000 with single digit numbers of 90 degree days in both Chicago and Rockford.
