A little cooler overnight in rural Lake County away from Lake Michigan and away from the heat island of city metro areas. Fox Lake is forecast to reach a low of 53°F about 6:00 a.m. Thursday. The air temperature will rise rapidly to 79°F by 1:00 p.m.
Sure felt different and pleasant outside on Wednesday, didn't it? While it was still around 80° for a high, the dew point was the key, as that had dropped into the lower 50s and even 40s. This makes for a drier, comfortable feel, and the lowest dew points in nearly seven weeks. pic.twitter.com/wvsXrgKZCm
