Currently in Chicago — June 6th, 2022

The weather, currently.

Takeaways for Chicago's weather:

  1. Every Other Day Showers
  2. No 80s In Sight
  3. Wind Off Lake Starting Tuesday

Many dry hours this week but some wet ones too. Showers and thunderstorms likely Monday for a soggy start to the week. Drying out for Tuesday before some scattered showers on Wednesday. The pattern continues with a dry Thursday before more scattered showers on Friday. Most of the week will see highs in the lower to middle 70s but starting Tuesday there will be a wind off the lake to keep things cooler lakeside all the way through at least Saturday. Highs along the lakefront slide into the 60s for most of the week.

What you need to know, currently.

Currently’s Rebecca McCarthy wrote a piece last week on the man who began naming hurricanes after people,

“In 1902, a man named Clement Wragge aimed a cannon at the sky in Queensland, Australia and hoped for rain. Wragge was a visionary freak among meteorologists — orphaned at the age of five, he was trained in cosmology and meteorology by his grandmother and would later become quite interested in spiritualism. By most accounts, he was a foul-mouthed, short-tempered man, with a turbulent personal life and an unlikely relationship with Brigham Young, but today he’s generally regarded as one of the more influential figures in weather forecasting.”
