Chicago city is a tapestry of fascinating dichotomy. On one side there is its suave, urban image and on the other it has the stamp of being a rugged and heart place. This union of the high-end with the low-brow is what makes Chicago so popular that tourists from all over the world book their cheap international flights and fly here to spend an exciting vacation. But before you board your cheap flights to Chicago, here are few things that you must know.
When to Go
Where the months of June, September, and October are sunny and somewhat warm, November through March, take on a far, far cooler note. When it comes to July and August the weather can either be absolutely perfect or be really hot and humid.
Staying true to the adage, ‘Anything can happen’, the Chicago weather has flummoxed everyone who has tried to interpret it! Despite their being a reasonably well demarcation between weather and months, you can be caught in a downpour on a day that started out with the promise of being a rather pleasant one!
Since the weather here in so unpredictable, it makes great sense to pack smartly. The best advice for packing your clothes is that you pack clothes for all types of weather. Obviously in summers, you do not need to put in heavy cardigans, but do carry some light jacket or a wrap etc. Winters in Chicago are known to be rather windy, so along with your other warm clothes, a hat and a scarf also needs to be packed. Also, do not forget to put in an umbrella and a raincoat.
