Skilling: May already nearly 9 degrees warmer than year ago

The return of sunshine today and Friday will boost temperatures well above Wednesday’s sub-par 60-degree high.

May’s 61.8-degree average temperature through Wednesday at the official recording station at O’Hare International Airport is 6.1-degrees above normal. It’s the warmest May open here in 11 years and 8.8-degrees warmer than the same period a year ago. It places this month’s opening eight days as the 19th warmest of any May here since the official observation record began in 1871.
