Under cold high pressure, clear skies, and light winds, most temperatures dropped off into the teens Chicago-area-wide this chilly Wednesday morning. Actually the lowest readings were the 12-degrees registered at Rochelle and Freeport. Chicago’s record low temperature of 14-degrees for this date set back in 1916 still stands – the official reading at the O’Hare site bottomed-out at 17 degrees. Midway Airport in the Chicago “heat island” recorded a low of 20-degrees.

Farther north in Wisconsin Antigo hit zero, Rhinelander 2 and Stevens Point 3.
