Chicago’s official National Weather Service station at O’Hare set a new record high of 76°F this hour at 2:24 p.m. Thursday, November 10, 2022. A record 76°F was also recorded at Rockford. However, the temperatures across the area will be 30-40 degrees colder in 24 hours.

A surface cold front extends southward into far southeast Minnesota and curves south-southwest into eastern Iowa. The potency of the front in Minnesota has dropped temperatures as much as 20°F in a period as short as 15 minutes with winds gusting 30-40mph immediately behind the front.

The previous record high for November 10 for Chicago was 75°F set on November 10, 2020. Nov. 8 and Nov. 9 have record highs of 76°F — both also set in 2020. The normal high for Nov. 10 is 51°F

A narrow line of convection has recently also developed along the front, which will continue steadily eastward through tonight, and will cross much of Chicagoland this evening into the early overnight hours. Thunderstorms are not expected east of Interstate 39, but a period of light rain with gusty winds to 30 mph are possible about 5:00 am. to 8:00 a.m. Friday morning near Arlington Heights.

The air temperature will fall into the 60s after 5:00 p.m. but will hold in the 60s while falling into the 50s about 2:00 a.m. and the 40s about 4:00 a.m.

The air temperature will not rise during the day on Friday, and will drop into the 30s about 3:00 p.m., and fall to 32°F at midnight Friday/Saturday — then hold at 32°F until 6:00 a.m. The temperature will only rise to 38°F about 1:00 p.m. Saturday, November 12, 2022.

Snow flurries are possible all day Saturday, and Sunday morning’s low is forecast to reach 26°F around 5:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m.
