Weather

The best times to visit Chicago are April through May or September through October, when the temperatures are warm. If you are planning to visit the Windy City between June and August, prepare yourself for denser crowds and higher prices on accommodations. Winter is a different story altogether: Chicago experiences bitter temperatures between November and March.

April-May: There are advantages to staying ahead of the summertime crowds, namely more managable crowds. Temperatures hovering between the high 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 degrees Celsius) and the low 70s (20 degrees Celsius) — comfortable conditions for walking around. However, you should come prepared for rain, especially if you are visiting in May.

June-August: Summer is the most popular time to visit Chicago. Summer temperatures ranging from the mid-70 degrees Fahrenheit to the mid-80s (20 – 27 degrees Celsius). However, the city sometimes experiences heat waves, resulting in triple-digit temperatures and heavy humidity, while nighttime breezes from Lake Michigan can make the later hours feel significantly cooler. Also, expect to encounter some rain in August.

September-October: Autumn in Chicago offers a sweet spot for tourism.. Daytime highs hover in the 60s and 70 degrees Fahrenheit (16 – 20 degrees Celsius), but evenings can see temperatures drop into the 40s (4 degrees Celsius). Keep in mind that some of the city’s outdoor attractions — like Navy Pier — may have already reduced their hours or closed for the winter season.

November-March: Biting winds and freezing temperatures (daytime highs rest in the low 30 degrees Fahrenheit or below 0 degrees Celsius) deter faint-hearted tourists. You can seek refuge from the wintry weather in the city’s museums, but if you are hoping to visit Millennium Park or shop along the Magnificent Mile, wear your warmest layers.
