It's the shortest day of the year. So take heart, Chicago: from here on out, the days will start to get longer, second by second. And the solstice will be uneventful. Cloudy skies, highs in the mid 30s, pretty boring for the shortest days of the year. Conditions remain the same overnight as lows fall into the upper 20s. The long, slow climb to Spring begins.
