Located in the US Midwest in the state of Illinois, Chicago has a continental climate bringing warm summers and very cold winters to the city. In November, Chicago lives up to its name of the ‘Windy City’, with the cold really setting in as winter arrives. If you visit the city this month, make sure you take lots of warm layers and a thick winter coat in case of snow.


November is very cold in Chicago, with an average temperature of 5°C, rising to around 9°C in the warmest part of the day. After dark, temperatures drop right down to 0°C, so hats, scarves and gloves are a must-have.
