Crazy weather this weekend.
So on Saturday morning, the northwest suburbs of Chicago were socked with one to two inch size hail. Roughly half dollar to golf ball size. http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2014-04-12/news/chi-chicago-weather-20140412_1_storms-national-weather-service-kevin-birk
Then, we saw our first 80 degree reading of the year on Saturday afternoon.
On Sunday, it was a tale of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, with temperatures plunging into the 40s in the northern parts of Chicagoland on Sunday afternoon, as the western and southern parts of Chicagoland remained in the 60s. I was up north on Sunday evening and had my heat on in my car when I drove south. As I approached somewhere west of St. Charles, I had to turn off my heat and roll down my windows. This temperature difference could be reflected in the readings for O'Hare and Midway, with a 20+ degree temperature difference between the two airports most of the afternoon and early evening despite being only 15 miles apart.
I was on a bike ride Saturday and was riding from Crystal Lake to Algonquin and the sky looked ominous and you could tell it was raining not that far away. Within a minute or two of getting inside our destination the hail started. I don't think I would want to know how much that would hurt. And then it was dry after we finished eating.
