Today is already the warmest Jan. 29 in Chicago history, toppling an almost 100-year-old record 15 minutes before the sun came up.
The previous record – 59 degrees in 1914 – was surpassed at 6:50 a.m. at O’Hare International Airport, according to the National Weather Service.
Chicago is also flirting with a new all-time high for January. The current record is 67 degrees set on Jan. 25, 1950. Today’s forecast is for a high of 66 degrees. At 1 p.m., it was 63 at the airport but had dropped to 58 by about 4 p.m.
“This is basically a May air mass in January,” said Richard Castro, a meteorologist for the weather service.
