Chicago Mild Winter Continues With Little Chance For Significant Snowfall This Week

While Chicago remains in the grips of a mild winter that has seen record-breaking amounts of non-snow, Los Angelenos' reactions to some unusual weather of their own puts the Windy City's weather into hilarious context.

With temperatures in California hitting 22-year lows, going as low as 30 degrees in typically-tropical Woodland Hills Sunday morning, local media coverage of the "cold snap" was skewered by late-night host Jimmy Kimmel last week.

"And look at the temperatures, only into the 50s!" one meteorologist exclaims in the clip. "How long will this arctic blast last?" an anchor asks.

Temperatures in the Southwest are expected to become gradually warmer within the next 48 hours, according to the Washington Post.

Meanwhile, in Chicago, the city has passed the halfway mark of meteorological winter and is still a whopping 12.6 inches below average snowfall for the season, according to the Tribune. Monday marked the 325th consecutive day the city has gone without an inch of snowfall or more, the longest "snowless" stretch on record. As for the city's next chance of snow? Flurries are possible Wednesday evening into Thursday.

Though Chicago saw temperatures cool over the weekend, making for slippery roadways in the area, the city is also on the heels of a brief warmup late last week that nearly broke a record high.
