Chicago is the largest city in the US Midwest (and the third largest city in the country after New York and Los Angeles), the economic and cultural “capital” of the region, and one of the largest transportation hubs in the United States of America.

Chicago is located in northeastern Illinois on the shores of Lake Michigan. Two rivers flow through the city (Chicago River and Calumet), and next to it there is a canal connecting the Great Lakes with the Mississippi.

Chicago has a humid continental climate with distinct seasons. Winters are usually cold and snowy, with an average January temperature in Chicago ranging from -8°C to 0°C. Once every few years, a strong wind from the lake brings snow storms and blizzards. Spring is warm (although sometimes snow falls even in late March – early April), thunderstorms are common. Summer here is usually hot and rainy, the average July temperature ranges from 20°C to 29°C, and the maximum daily temperature can reach 38-40°C. Autumn in Chicago is warm, often hot weather lasts until the end of September – early October.

The vast water surface of Lake Michigan significantly softens weather conditions. Despite the fact that Chicago’s most famous nickname is the “City of the Winds”, in fact, they are not so strong here (on average from 3 to 6 m / s), this name is more poetic in nature than really connected with the climate..
