Tom Skilling reports:

"Never in the 81 years of weather observations at Midway Airport have Chicagoans found themselves 24 days into July without a reading above 86 degrees."

How is everyone surviving this Global Warming crisis?

Okay, yes, Chicago's "warmest weather in weeks" may finally be on its way, but why is the Tribune tonight (8/3) posting on its homepage this Skilling story from 7/24? Above "the fold", no less. Did you guys even read the article before relisting it?

I mean, I am hoping it'll finally be warmer, but seriously. Journalism, please.

Why not skip the middleman and check out the NOAA site? It's usually more informative than the weathermen on the TV... They'll give the forecast and explain in more technical terms why they forecasted it that way. If you're also interested, you can take a look at some of the computer models used to make these forecasts.

http://www.weather.gov

For example, they are saying the models are talking about head indices of 100 to 105 for the weekend... yeouch!

Climate change, yes... manmade?...possibly in part. GLOBAL warming? Not exactly.

Should we do what we can to mitigate our impact? Sure, within reason.

Tom say's " No rain recorded at O Hare " . Whatever you say Tom. There was a down pour at OHare around 9 am that lasted about a 1/2 hour. Don't listen to this guy, he's an overpaid weather - fearmongering idiot who try's to over impress. How much did you pay Billy & Tom at the City's tug boat's Skilling to say on tv what a great weatherman you are ? Retire !!!

Rain, what is rain, it is dry out. I don't believe in rain either. I walked outside and I don't see no rain. Mountains, what are mountains, the ground looks flat to me.
Should we keep going?

The difference of course being that one can find rain or a mountain if one wishes; anthropogenic global warming is a myth.

Well if you get what you normally have in weather, you are in for a doozy! We just got done with a record breaking 10 days in a row over 90. 3 days over 100 but low humidity. You will fry and die if it gets there!
