Single digit wind chills area-wide this Saturday morning

Strong westerly winds gusting at times well over 30 mph, clear skies and very cold Canadian-source high pressure moving into our area produced widespread low temperatures in the teens to lower 20s and single-digit wind chills across NE Illinois, SE Wisconsin, and NW Indiana this morning.  Lowest temperature at an area airport location was far western Sterling/Rock Falls at 14 degrees and Freeport as well as Rochelle at 15 degrees.  The low wind chill was 1 degree at Sterling/Rock Falls, Freeport and DeKalb.
