August 21 bike forecast: good weather “eclipsed”

Monday: new week, new weather. Bad weather, actually. And a solar eclipse.

That means we’re packing more info into the weather infographic than ever before.

MONDAY WEATHER INFOGRAPHIC:

Overall: high 85, low 72, with PM thunderstorms likely and winds from the southish.

Special Eclipse Alert: Sunglasses indicate “solar eclipse,” as does the text, “Eclipse Alert! Maximum Eclipse: ~1:18pm.”

Eclipse begins at 11:54am, but we won’t see “MAX ECLIPSE” until 1:18. Then it all ends at 2:42pm. Cloudy skies will obscure our view, probably. 😦

A note:

Chicago Bike Report will be changing its format in the coming days and weeks. Will we see more feature stories? Probably. Regular bike commute forecasts? I dunno.

In early September I’m riding my bike from Chicago to New York, which means that either way, post volume will decline. But think of all the cool pix of life on the road you’ll get to see.


OVERALL COMMUTE RATING:

2 out of 4 stars. Even if you don’t ride, go outside!
