Chicago by a mile because almost every season is better than London. Spring is up in the air though...

Chicago of course.

For the colder winters, and for more interesting weather throughout the year.

London for the cooler summers and lower sunshine hours. Very comfortable and livable.

No doubt that London's got my choice. Having much less chance of hazardous thunderstorms and much nicer summers(only thing I complain about London is those shoulder seasons are a bit cooler than the ideal).

Heathrow is warmer than O'Hare.

Greenwich is warmer than Midway.

St James's Park and London Weather Centre are warmer than any station in Chicago, or the surrounding area.

Which months are you talking about?


MDW and UofC are warmer than Heathrow April through October in both means and average highs


------Heathrow---- Greenwich------- MDW----- UofC

April: 9.9C--------10.3C--------------10.3C-----10.4C
Oct: 12.0C---------12.2C-------------12.4C----- 13.4C

You don't have data for St James Park, and LWC is a rooftop station... Both ORD and MDW are on the outskirts of the city limits. MDW is more urban than ORD. UofC is in the city less than 2 miles from the lake. However, I'm sure DePaul University in the heart of the UHI in Chicago's Loop (CBD) has minimum temps significantly higher than MDW or UofC, but they don't publish data either.

The climate in general.

Over the year, London is a warmer city.

It's close... but Greenwich does edge out UofC in Means.

Greenwich: 15.3C/7.8C Mean 11.6C
UofC: 15.9C/7.1C Mean: Mean 11.5C


If you broke it down by season. It looks a lot different though.

No matter how you try to nuance it, Chicago is warmer than London for around six or seven months of the year from sometime in April to sometime in October. Obviously London is warmer during the other times--sometimes significantly so.

However, during the time period that Chicago is the warmer of the two it gets to experience a genuinely warm to hot summer--something London cannot achieve.
