Illinois Weather Trivia for October 11th

10/11/2010
Eighty-one cooperative weather reporting stations in Illinois were established before 1900. Of these, the oldest organized reporting system was at Fort Dearborn, in present-day Chicago, where records began in 1832. However, in Elgin, military surgeons took occasional observations as early as 1824. Some of the earliest reporting stations in central Illinois included Athens (1843) and Jacksonville (1849).
