Christmas is just 43 days away, which not only means that Macy's has unveiled its holiday windows, but also that AccuWeather has its first prediction for this year's Yuletide meteorological conditions. Granted, forecasting the weather a month and a half out isn't very reliable, but it's still a useful resource for anyone looking to plan a trip during the holidays.
The forecast for Chicago shows mild air stretching "westward across the northern part of the country" during the week of Christmas, with expecting high of 25 degrees. AccuWeather is also predicting that it will be cloudy with a bit of snow on Christmas Eve, and therefore an idyllic white Midwestern Christmas in Chicago.
Historically, Christmas Day in Chicago has brought an average high of 33 degrees and a low of 20 degrees. Considering that it's the middle of November, that's probably just as good of an indication as to what the weather will be come December 25.
Whatever the weather is, may every Chicagoan have a merry Christmas that's free of drunken arguments with Aunt Julie about how to properly brine the goddamned holiday turkey.
