Windy City Weather

Chicago is known for its distinctive seasons, cold in the winter and hot and humid in the summer. Dress for the seasons, snow boots in the winter and light layers in the summer. Spring is usual wet, so don't forget your rain boots. The city is right next to Lake Michigan, so chill lakeshore breezes and fog are common. Temperature averages in the high 80s to low 30s (Fahrenheit).
