April 28: Another day, another wrong forecast?

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)

DIVVY REPORT: Big news.

-Humboldt Drive & Luis Munoz Marin Drive station (inside Humboldt Park) removed entirely. Aw.

-New station opens at California Ave. & Cortez St.

Otherwise, all stations operational except Chappel Ave & 79th St., which remains closed.

2.75 stars. Pretty good, assuming it doesn’t rain.

 

Enjoy your rides, and stay dry!
