Chicago is on track for the warmest February on record

The recent unseasonably mild weather is amounting to what might become Chicago’s warmest February in recorded history.


Chicago’s warmest monthly average temperature for February was 39 degrees in 1882. Based on the weather so far and the latest predictions through the end of the month, this February is on track to barely top that record and reach a 39.2-degree average, according to the National Weather Service.


“This is all just speculative data, but we’re going to be very close to potentially the warmest February in Chicago recorded history,” NWS meteorologist Mark Ratzer said.
