Summer has been elusive in Chicago–and July is so far the second coldest in history.
The average temperature so far this month has been 77.8 degrees–far off the average of mid-80s for this time of year. The coldest July ever was in 1967 when the average temperature was 76.5 degrees.
Another rarity for July in Chicago: We have failed to reach 90 degrees at any time. Two days have had highs only in the mid-60s.
