Temperatures will continue to drop tonight from the record low temperatures of 4 above this Thursday afternoon. Readings will bottom out well below zero overnight and then begin to slowly rise toward morning, as winds pick up somewhat out of the southwest.

As temperatures begin to drop off – headed back below zero again later this evening, the 4-degree temperature registered at 3 and 4PM CST this afternoon at Chicago’s O’Hare official observing site will be our high temperature for the day. This chilly high will erase the old record low high temperature of 9-degrees on this date back in 1936.
