...MORE ON THE EARLY SEASON COLD...

THE HIGH TEMPERATURE TODAY IN CHICAGO WAS 31 DEGREES AND THE HIGH
IN ROCKFORD WAS 30 DEGREES...ABOUT 20 DEGREES BELOW THE
CLIMATOLOGICAL AVERAGE HIGH FOR THE DATE.

IN CHICAGO...TODAY WAS THE COLDEST HIGH TEMPERATURE THIS EARLY IN
THE SEASON SINCE 1996 WHEN THE HIGH ONLY REACHED 31 DEGREES ON
NOVEMBER 10TH.

IN ROCKFORD...TODAY WAS THE COLDEST HIGH TEMPERATURE THIS EARLY IN
THE SEASON SINCE 1995 WHEN THE HIGH ONLY REACHED 28 DEGREES ON
NOVEMBER 12TH.

LAST YEAR AT THIS TIME...WE WERE ALSO IN THE MIDST OF AN EARLY
SEASON COLD BLAST. THE HIGH TEMPERATURE ON NOVEMBER 12TH REACHED
33 DEGREES IN CHICAGO AND 31 DEGREES IN ROCKFORD. THE BIG
DIFFERENCE LAST YEAR WAS THAT THE COLD SNAP DID NOT PERSIST LIKE
IT WILL THIS YEAR. JUST FIVE DAYS LATER...THE HIGH TEMPERATURE IN
BOTH CHICAGO AND ROCKFORD SOARED TO 69 DEGREES. THIS CAME IN THE
WARM SECTOR OF THE INTENSE STORM SYSTEM THAT BROUGHT ONE OF THE
WORST FALL TORNADO OUTBREAKS ON RECORD.
