Lake Villa Weather & Climate

Northeast Illinois , near Lake Michigan, lies midway between the Continental Divide and the Atlantic Ocean. The climate is typically continental with cold winters, warm summers, and frequent short fluctuations in temperature, humidity, cloudiness and wind direction. Lake Michigan greatly influences the climate of northeastern Illinois. The large thermal mass of the lake tends to moderate temperatures, causing cooler summers and warmer winters. Cool lake breezes provide relief from summer heat and the lake also tends to increase cloudiness and suppress summer precipitation. Winter precipitation is enhanced by lake-effect snows that occur when winds blow from the north or northeast. These winds allow air to pass over the relatively warm lake, boosting storm system energy and water content, leading to increased snowfall.
