Dangerous Cold, Flurries This Week for Chicago

Frigid temperatures and dangerous cold will continue in the city until Friday, when a storm will bring more snow to the area.

Temperatures will dip down below 10 F on Thursday, following highs in the teens on Wednesday. Overnight temperatures both nights will be near 0 F.

Those outdoors at night should take the proper precautions and wear multiple layers, as the cold could induce cold-related illnesses, such as frostbite and hypothermia.

While temperatures will return to the mid-20s to end the weekend, snow showers Friday evening through Saturday afternoon will bring anywhere from 3 to 6 inches of snow to Chicago.

Winds over the weekend may also cause blowing snow, as wind gusts up to 30 mph are possible on Saturday.

Finishing out the weekend, temperatures will again plummet down into the teens, so despite sunny skies the air in the city will feel cold.

Heading into next week, the air will remain frigid with dangerous overnight lows.
