Emergency Heating Conditions in Effect
Chicago’s official air temperature on Tuesday, reported at O’Hare International Airport, came within just a couple of degrees of tying a record set 37 years ago.
The airport recorded a low temperature of -11 before rebounding a couple of degrees. The record low for Jan. 28 was -13 set in 1977.
As of 9:30 a.m., O’Hare reported -8 degrees. And we don’t have to tell you: that’s cold. Bitter cold. Dangerously cold.
Nearly all of the metropolitan area is under a Wind Chill Warning through Wednesday morning
