Currently in Chicago — September 29th, 2022

Takeaways for Chicago's weather:

1. Grab Your Shades

2. Dry Forecast Thru Early Next Week

3. A Bit Warmer This Weekend

Fantastic fall weather for Chicago. We should end September with plenty of sunshine each day and start of October the same way. Mostly sunny to sunny skies expected through Sunday so grab your sunglasses. Just a few more clouds early next week. Warming from the lower 60s for highs Thursday into the middle 60s Friday and settling in the upper 60s to near 70 for Saturday through at least Tuesday. Cool nights but the threat of frost is gone for now.

What you need to know, currently.

Ian made landfall Wednesday as a horrifying Category 4 hurricane, with winds just shy of Category 5. Cuba began restoring power today, after the storm knocked out the country’s grid as it passed through.

The storm’s track shifted slightly to the east on Wednesday, bringing catastrophic flooding to much of the southeastern portion of the state.

Conditions are expected to worsen throughout the evening as the storm moves across the state. Although Ian will weaken as it moves inland, it’s still a massive storm carrying an enormous amount of rain. The latest storm surge update extends to North Carolina and estimates 4-6 feet of flooding along the entire Georgia coast.
