Tom Skilling Explains Spring-Like February Weather

In 2015, temperatures in Chicago tied the city’s record for the coldest-ever February.

This February, it's felt more like spring, with record-breaking highs and weather warmer than in Southern California.

On Monday, Chicago temperatures broke the day's record high set back in 1930. Friday, Saturday and Sunday high temps all broke previous records, too.

Joining Chicago Tonight to explain the beautiful weather – and tell us how much more of this we can expect – is WGN chief meteorologist Tom Skilling.
