Residents welcome warmer weather, but cold to return
DeKALB – It’s not unusual to find Ken Doubler teeing off at River Heights Golf Course in DeKalb on a Tuesday morning. But it’s rare to see him doing so in January.
Before sunrise, Tuesday’s temperatures tied the record high of 50 degrees for Jan. 29 set in 1974. According to Northern Illinois University meteorologist Gilbert Sebenste, DeKalb unofficially reached a record-setting high of 59 degrees Tuesday.
Doubler is an avid golfer who plays at River Heights Golf Course at 1020 Sharon Drive as often as five days a week when weather permits. He couldn’t resist the idea of playing in such warm temperatures in January.
