Anyone in CHI right now? What are people wearing?

Asked by prioritymail (1617 points ) May 14th, 2011

Going to Chicago soon, says it’s 30s-50s F right now. Boots or sandals? Sweaters or spring dresses? Seems like that is too cold to bust out the Spring wardrobe, right??

Bring everything. Last week we set a record high for the date at 90. The week before that we set a record low for the date. Today, you could close your eyes and imagine you’re in southeast Alaska. So, who the hell knows what you’ll find when you get here?

I’m in Illinois. It’s in the low 50s and raining. It’s supposed to be in the low 40s upper 30s the next two nights and low 50s and more rain tomorrow during the day. I noticed the forecast for the next week will be in the 60s.

What @thorninmud said. It’s 48 F right now but we already hit 90 this spring.

Wear your warm clothes & boots, it’s the easiest way to carry them while traveling. Pack your sandals & sun dress.

Enjoy the city, we love visitors!!

Record high and low in two weeks?! That’s impressive. Thanks all!

Windbreaker, shorts, sandals and hiking boots. It was 85 on Wednesday and 36 with windchill today, Bring a little of both especially if you are to be anywhere near the lake.

Heh. I just checked and it’s 12 degrees warmer in Juneau Alaska than here right now.

Thanks for all the great advice everyone. I think it was spot on. I ended up not bringing boots and regretting it. Indeed I was wearing three shirts and a trench coat at the start of the trip and shorts by the end, and then the next day it hailed.
