It was cold Friday morning. Colder than it has been in this area since March.
But it wasn’t a freeze. Not yet.
According to WeatherUnderground, the Irving Park station KILCHICA69 recorded a temperature low of 33.1° F for about 20 minutes starting at 6.30A Friday. The new KILCHICA105 station in Lincoln Square recorded an even lower reading of 32.7° F for five minutes at 6.11A.
While the West Rogers Park station KILCHICA51 hit 32° F for five minutes starting at 6.35A.
That’s on the knife edge and isn’t acceptable to define a frost. The temperature has to be BELOW freezing first. A condition that means our growing season is now at about 228 days with the next chance of a freeze being on Wednesay night.
Enjoy this unusually beautiful weather.
