So many alarmist stories about rain, so little actual rain. What the heck, Chicagoland meteorologists?
Same deal Friday as Wednesday and Thursday. A good chance of rain. After being burned in the past, here’s our take: be skeptical. But bring rain gear anyway.
Such negligible wind in the morning! That’s nice. Here’s the breakdown:
All day: High 59, low 45, cloudy, 50% chance of rain
Morning: low 50s, cloudy, 2 MPH winds from NE
Evening: high 50s, cloudy, wind from the ENE at 8 MPH, 50% chance of rain (dubious)
