The weather, currently.

Takeaways for Chicago's weather:

1. Warming Well Above Average

2. Good Timing For Rain

3. 90°F Within Reach

Plenty of September sunshine along with a southerly wind will push highs well above average. Thursday’s highs will hit the lower 80s while Friday’s top out in the middle 80s. Even warmer this weekend with highs hitting the upper 80s Saturday and Sunday. Our best chance for a 90°F high comes on Monday. Our best chance for rain in the form of scattered showers is Saturday night and Sunday night but dry during the daytime this weekend.

Medicare beneficiaries with diabetes can look forward to their monthly insulin supply being capped at $35. Households who can afford to invest in clean energy technology, like solar panels or an electric vehicle, can expect to benefit from things like tax credits and direct consumer rebates.

On paper, some might call such a legislative package monumental, in its effort to incentivize consumers to reduce their GHG emissions."
