Going To The Chicago Women's March? The Weather Will Be Great

By Kelly Bauer | January 19, 2017 10:41am

DOWNTOWN — It'll be unseasonably warm when tens of thousands of people take to the city's streets for the Women's March on Saturday.

The march — expected to draw 50,000 people just in Chicago — starts at 10 a.m. Temperatures Saturday will start in the lower 40s, but they'll hit the 50s by 11 a.m., said AccuWeather meteorologist Tom Kines.

You can expect to see thermometers hover around 55 or 56 degrees the rest of the day, Kines said.

The day will be "pretty cloudy," Kines said, and though unlikely, it's possible there will be a shower sometime in the afternoon. The rain isn't expected to be heavy or last long if it does fall.

It won't be particularly windy, either, with winds averaging 7-14 mph, Kines said.

Things will get chillier after the march, though. Expect to see temperatures fall to "50 at best" on Sunday and near 40 early next week, Kines said.
