Today's Weather: Just Beachy

By Selena Fragassi in News on Jul 25, 2015 3:00PM

Summer has finally made it to Chicago as we enter our ninth straight day of 80-plus degrees. Today will be warm and humid with a high of 88 and a real-feel of 94 degrees, a perfect day to head to the beach or pool to cool off and relax in the temperate weather.

Any rain that passes through early will be gone by afternoon providing a good dose of sunshine with mixed clouds for the remainder of the day. And from the looks of the extended forecast, this pattern is locked in for at least the next five days—yep, summer is going nowhere.
