A windy shift into the coolest air of the season is on the horizon

Here is my latest CHICAGO METRO FORECAST FOR THURSDAY (10/6/2022) plus THURSDAY’S WEATHER HEADLINES and latest NWS 6 to 10 and 8 to 14 DAY TEMP TREND FORECAST

FIRST, THURSDAY WEATHER HEADLINES

–THE COOLEST AIR in the 5 months since last May is sweeping into the area on strengthening northerly winds that have triggered STORM WARNINGS over the open waters of Lake Michigan.

– Temperatures drop to the 40s across Chicago tonight – some upper 30s are forecast in the extreme northwest portions of the metro area towards McHenry, Boone and Winnebago counties

– As cool northerly winds flow the length of Lake Michigan into lake areas on the southern end of the lake, LAKE EFFECT RAIN CLOUDS AND SOME LAKE EFFECT RAIN SHOWERS are forecast for lakeshore counties from Northeast Illinois to Northwest Indiana. The lake effect rains will have cleared from Chicago by evening – and the weekend will come on a sunny Saturday with lighter winds.

– FREEZING AND FREEZING TEMPERATURES are expected Friday night through Saturday morning outside of Lake Michigan and the city of Chicago — including inland areas west and south of Chicago in northern Illinois and outside of Lake Michigan in northwestern Indiana

-The average first 32-degree temperatures of each season typically reach October 10-11 in cooler western and southern locations such as Aurora, Kankakee, and Renssaler, IN through October 12 in O’Hare — just before October 24 October at Midway Airport and locations near Lake Michigan – two weeks spread across the Chicago area.

– Friday’s high temperatures will be 20 degrees cooler than today’s 75 degree high in O’Hare. A high of 54 is forecast for Friday and 56 for Saturday – the coolest daily highs here in the fall and in 5 months since May. This is also the first consecutive 50’s to have performed here since May,

—A COOL START for the Chicago Marathon continues to be predicted. Sunday morning race-time temperatures are expected to start in the 42-46 degree range on and near the Chicago lakefront with SW/W winds of 9-16 mph.

– A MAJOR RETURN TO WARMTH IN LATE SEASON will see temperatures soar into the 70s on Tuesday and Wednesday next week before another healthy cool wave meets gusty NW winds earlier in the season.
