True to its nickname as the ‘Windy City’, you can expect a light breeze in June which will keep you cool during the day. You’re likely to experience some rain, but showers are infrequent and short-lived.
In June, the average daily temperature is a pleasant 21oC, rising to a high of 27oC in the afternoons. Evening temperatures drop to average lows of 14oC, so you’ll need a jumper or jacket for nights out at the city’s many bars and restaurants.
