Chicago in November?


My husband and I are planning a trip to Chicago in mid November, probably the 14 thru the 20 from Baton Rouge, LA.

We are debating on whether we should drive or fly.  Being from Louisiana, we rarely have to deal with snow/ice so we don't think we would do very well with driving in it.  I know there is no definite way of knowing, but I was hoping someone could tell me if you all typically have icy roads around that time of year.

Thanks in advance!


Re: Chicago in November?

  •       More often than not we don't get much snow until December, last year we basically went the whole winter without a significant snowfall and unless it's a real blizzard the streets will be cleaned off in a day.  I think you'd be fine driving. 

  • November tends to be wet, but not icy.  Doesn't mean it never happens though.
  • It's much too early in the season for you to have to worry about snow/ice. Enjoy your vacation!

  • Depends, the past 2 winters have been really cold, but not snowy, the winter before then was extremely snowy, but all three didn't have snowfall until late Nov, but there have been plenty of winters with snow in Mid Nov... usually not enough to impede driving IMO, but tell that to the drivers next to me, lol!  I guess if you've never experienced snow and your scared, fly, but I think you'd be safe driving if you just plan ahead lots of time for breaks and to drive slow in case it does start snowing.  Have an awesome trip!
