WGN's Paul Konrad predicts the 2011 Chicago Marathon weather for TOC

If you're a marathon runner, you started obsessing about the forecast weeks—dare I say, months?—before the big dance. By now, your fave weather forecasting site is probably bookmarked in your web browser so you can click over. And over. And over. To fuel that obsession, we asked WGN's Paul Konrad to weigh in with his predicted Chicago Marathon forecast:

"It looks like a warmer than average temps on October 9 for the marathon. Computer models indicate that race time temps will start in the mid 50s and climb quickly into the mid 60s by 10am. Mid-day temps could climb into the mid 70s with bright sunshine. Sunscreen and water will be needed. Enjoy each step!"
