Climate :

Illinois has four distinct seasons, ranging from cold winters to hot, somewhat humid summers. By far the best time to visit is May-October, when temperatures are mild and fairly predictable. The leaves, especially in Shawnee National Forest, are beautiful in the fall. In winter, temperatures may vary as much as 20 degrees F/11 C in an hour, and the wind can make very cold temperatures even colder -- and more dangerous (dress very warmly if you're visiting then). Northern Illinois averages 25 F/-4 C in January, 75 F/24 C in July. Southern Illinois averages 36 F/2 C in January and 79 F/26 C in July. Central Illinois gets more than its share of ice storms during the winter and tornadoes during spring and summer. The Chicago area within 3 mi/5 km of Lake Michigan tends to get much more snow than the rest of the city because of the "lake effect."
