CHICAGO —January is blasting Chicago in March.

A new record cold high temperatures for March 4 was set Monday.

The Chicago's official high temperature was just 12 degrees.  That  set a new record cold high temperature for March 4th, supplanting the old record of 17 set back in 1890.

It was also the single coldest March daytime high in 76 years.

Temperatures will slowly start to climb out of the unseasonable cold.  By the weekend, the Chicago area could see 45 degrees.
