Chicago is already a few weeks late due to the first measurable snowfall, defined as a tenth inch, and is approaching the record of the longest dry spell, so to speak.
A small amount of snow flurry has fallen, but it is 268 days (as of Wednesday) since the last measurable snowfall on March 15. According to the National Meteorological Service..
This is only 22 days behind the 290 records posted in 2012. The current streak may continue as temperatures of 50 degrees Celsius are projected over the next few days.
The official Chicago O’Hare gauge usually records the first snow by November 18, but little about the Chicago weather.
“Remember that the winter of 2020-2021 also started slowly,” the agency staff posted on social media.
Then February came and dumped 34 inches into the city in just three weeks.
