A chilly morning across the Chicago area
Single-digit temperatures and sub-zero wind chills prevailed across the Chicago area this Saturday morning. Lowest temperatures were west of the Fox River Valley, close to the Interstate-39 corridor with a 1-degree low at Rockford and 2-degrees at Rochelle and DeKalb. A 10 to 15 mph northwest wind was generating wind chills generally in the -5 to -15-degree range.
Arctic-source high pressure will dominate the weather today with snow showers gradually diminishing over the northwest corner of Indiana just south of Lake Michigan and mostly sunny skies elsewhere.
