'More January than November': It'll stay cold today

Tribune reporter

Chicago is waking up to the coldest morning of the year -- the coldest since January in the city, according to the National Weather Service.

Overnight temperatures dropped to 12 degrees early this morning at O'Hare International Airport, said Charles Mott, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Romeoville.

That's the coldest temperature recorded at the airport since Jan. 22, when the low was 11 degrees, Mott said.

The current cold front, which arrived Friday night and will linger through this week, is bringing temperatures significantly lower than those typically expected this time of year.

"This temperature is more January than November," Mott said.

Chicago temperatures will increase slightly today to a high of about 26 degrees before dropping to a low tonight of about 20 degrees.
