We're looking forward to warmer weather as much as anyone in Chicago, but rest assured the calls of "it's too hot outside" will grow to a crescendo the first moment Tom Skilling says heat indices are in the triple digits.
Leave it to Farmer's Almanac to sound the alarm that Chicago may be in store for a hotter than average summer. Below is a chart of precipitation and temperature predictions the Almanac drafted for Chicago from November 2014 through October 2015. Peep, peeps.

Lake Michigan, which was 90 percent covered in ice a year ago, only has 73 percent ice coverage today. Last year's brutal cold resulted in ice remaining in the Great Lakes longer in the year and a much milder summer.
Unless you're a Quaker concerned on when to plant your seed, we don't see why we should worry about Farmer's Almanac. In Skilling we trust!
