Wheaton is an affluent community located in DuPage County about 25 miles west of Chicago. It has a population of 55,000 and is considered part of the Chicago metropolitan area and the Illinois Technology and Research Corridor. Wheaton offers excellent recreational opportunities, including the 135-acre Lincoln Marsh, which has over 300 species of plants and animals. There are several golf courses located in Wheaton, two public swimming pools and a water park and Cosley Zoo, which is a free-admission zoo. In addition, the Wheaton Park District has received the National Gold Medal for Excellence by the National Park & Recreation Association three times in the past fifteen years. Altogether, the park district includes 52 parks covering 800 acres. The Illinois Prairie Path also runs throughout the community of Wheaton. Wheaton is home to the DuPage County Fairgrounds, which is home to the annual county fair each year in late July. Also, for history buffs, the Wheaton Grand Theater, built in 1925, has been restored to its original state, complete with lighted dome ceiling dotted with stars, and a newly painted floor. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.

Wheaton Weather & Climate

Northeastern Illinois has a four-season continental climate with cold winters and warm, humid summers. The annual precipitation for this region is approximately 36 inches. The area can receive heavy snowfalls and experiences blizzards occasionally. Spring and fall are often the most pleasant in this region. Lake Michigan influences the climate of most of northeastern Illinois. Near the lake, cool breezes provide some 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.
