New releases from Orlando bands: The Welzeins, Byson, Brian Smalley, Alien Witch
Over the past handful of years, I've watched local band the Welzeins evolve into one of the best all-out rock bands in Orlando's current class. On the electronic end of the spectrum, noted Orlando producer Byson has really jacked up the BPMs for his new EP, groove district vol. An intriguing recent release is Chosen by local musician Brian Smalley, a concept album that's essentially a folk opera. These seemingly straightforward Florida folk songs are, just like all things Florida, a little bit more twisted underneath the veneer. Chosen is released on Florida folk label Gatorbone Records and available through the artist's website (briansmalley.com).orlandoweekly.com
Chicago weather forecast calls for sporadic snow and lows below zero through weekend. Again!
“If the month ended now, it would rank as the third coldest on record, but we don’t think we’re gonna finish there,” Borchardt said Thursday morning. “Toward the end of the month we’re going trend back to normal. It looks like toward the end of next week, we should start to get back to normal.”chicagotribune.com
Polar Express: Arctic outbreak to invade parts of US
ORLANDO, Fla. – The northern tier of the country has been in the grasp of Arctic air for the last week. The core of the potentially record-breaking cold air will settle right into the Nation’s heartland over the weekend. The second is the stratospheric polar vortex which forms in the winter and resides over the polar regions way up in the stratosphere. When the stratospheric polar vortex is weak, the tropospheric polar vortex or polar jet stream also tends to weaken, allowing for Arctic air to spill into the Lower-48. (NOAA)The Arctic oscillation tracks the stability of the polar vortex.
Orlando fusion band Leisure Chief drops new album ‘Cosmic Comics’
This week, Orlando fusion band Leisure Chief will release their first new full-length album in five years. Titled Cosmic Comics, the record is an eight-song ride that's a smooth, easy brew of funk, R&B and jazz that even features a cameo by local legend Anthony Cole. And the Chief will perform in Winter Park at the New Standard on Feb. 5. On Monday, Feb. 1, Orlando roots-rock band Sugar City will release an especially timely EP titled When We Get Outta Here. It's unapologetically topical — especially in singles "Wear a F'n Mask" and "Lose Control" — but in ways more human than political.orlandoweekly.com

Storms rip through Chicago area, with temperatures set to drop to 30s and 40s after record November heat wave
There has never been so long a stretch of 70-plus-degree days so late in the year since the weather service began record keeping in the city in 1871, according to Todd Kluber, a meteorologist with the agency. At 10:12 a.m., when it warmed to 70 degrees at O’Hare International Airport, the city’s official weather recording site, 2020 made that historic first. Myriad other warm-weather records were set this week.chicagotribune.com
Chicago breaks warm-weather records for November on Monday, as ‘heat wave’ set to last through Tuesday
In 1953 there had been five consecutive November days with a temperature higher than 70 degrees, and by notching six this year, that record was toppled. There also had been a long-standing late-season record of six consecutive days of 70 degrees or higher, from Oct. 27 to Nov. 1, 1950. Since this six-day stretch comes later in the season, that record also was felled.chicagotribune.com
After Chicago matches record high for Wednesday, will the warm weather last?
It’s expected to be so unseasonably warm for so long that Chicago could match a nearly 70-year-old record and Rockford could mark five consecutive days with a temperature of 70 degrees or warmer in November for the first time. Chicago on Wednesday tied the record high temperature for Nov. 4 set in 1978, hitting 74 degrees at 3 p.m. at O’Hare International Airport, according to the National Weather Service.chicagotribune.com
