Sunday marks coldest day since late January

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Sunday marked Chicago's coldest day since late January, according to the National Weather Service.

Morning temperatures sank to 11 degrees at O'Hare International Airport, said Charles Mott, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in suburban Romeoville. Just after midnight, the wind chill factor hit a low of 1 degree.

That ties the city's coldest day since Jan. 22, when temperatures also hit 11 degrees, Mott said.

The frigid temperatures rolled in Friday evening and are expected to remain through the week.

"These temperatures are more along the lines of January, definitely not November," Mott said.

Weather service records show the average high at O'Hare in November is 48 degrees and the low, 32 degrees.

As of noon, temperatures had peaked at 23 degrees, while they will likely drop to a low of 20 degrees tonight.

The city's record low for Nov. 24 happened in 1950 when temperatures hit 2 below zero.
