Coldest Temps yet this winter across the Chicago area

Weather


With the center of frigid Arctic-source high pressure overhead this Tuesday morning, temperatures dropped to their coldest early winter levels yet across the Chicago area. A few airport locations registered single digits and negative wind chills before an overcast altocumulus cloud deck moved in from the west, cutting back on the long-wave radiational heat loss and capping most low temps in the 10 to 13-degree range. Lowest temp and coldest wind chill, 7 and a minus-6, was registered at the DeKalb airport.

Temperature will only rise into the 20s today, and some light snow is expected to fall later this afternoon and overnight as a weak low pressure approaches from the northwest.
