Share post:

Chicago, IL – A significant shift in weather patterns is on the horizon for early February, with above-average temperatures expected to bring a welcome thaw across the Midwest. 

According to the National Weather Service the long-range forecast, as of January 24, 2024, anticipates highs in the lower 30s and lows in the mid-teens, marking a stark contrast to the typical chill of winter months. This ‘February Thaw’ is also likely to bring reduced precipitation, decreasing the likelihood of snow.

Motorists in northern Illinois and northwestern Indiana are advised to exercise caution due to dense fog persisting through Thursday. The National Weather Service recommends slowing down, increasing following distance, and using low beam headlights for safer travel amidst reduced visibility. 

This foggy and damp pattern is expected to continue, with a reprieve likely on the weekend, hinting at potential breaks in cloud cover by the following week.
