Record temps, rain reach the area
One record has fallen and another could be within reach today as the Chicago area enjoys unseasonably warm weather for late January.
Today is the warmest Jan. 29 in history, destroying an almost century-long record shortly before sunrise, according to the National Weather Service. The previous record of 59 degrees in 1914 was surpassed before 7 a.m. at O’Hare International Airport.
“It’s incredibly warm weather for this time of year,” meteorologist Jim Allsopp said. “This is extremely unusual for January, and temperatures will keep climbing throughout the day.”
