Record-Breaking Cold Grips Chicago



Quote:
-15 recorded at O'Hare at 7 a.m. breaks existing low set on this date in 1894 and 1988


The warnings from government officials were stern: stay inside if you can, limit your time outside and don't drive unless absolutely necessary.

Temperatures in the wake of a stubborn weather pattern that dropped several inches of snow could be summed up in a single word: brutal. At 7 a.m., O'Hare International Airport recorded a temperature of -15, breaking a record low of -14 set on this date in both 1894 and 1988. By 8:30 a.m., the official Chicago temperature had dipped another degree, to -16.

With the wind chill factored in, Monday's temperatures were predicted to be in the -40 to -50 degree range and even lower across the Fox Valley. By midday, the lowest recorded wind chill was in Aurora, at -47 degrees. DuPage and Porter recorded -46 degrees and O'Hare reported -42 degrees.


A Wind Chill Warning that began at 6 p.m. Sunday was scheduled to remain in effect until noon Tuesday.

There's also a possibility that even the high temperature for the Chicago area could set a new record low. The all-time lowest high temp was -11 on Jan. 18, 1994, and Dec. 24, 1983.

The last time O'Hare recorded a sub-zero high was Jan.15, 2009, with -1 degrees, according to National Weather Service meteorologists.

For comparison, Monday's forecasted high for Barrow, Alaska was 0 degrees.

The John Hancock Center is being considered for a landmark designation. Something that could get in the way of that potential landmark designation is a proposal to revamp the sunken plaza to its west. The revamp includes an attention-grabbing cluster of glass pylons and a Jumbotron-like video wall.

The owner of the commercial portion of the John Hancock Center, Stephen Hearn, stated that the landmark status could interfere with the planned plaza makeover.

An ellipse-shaped cluster of 54-foot-tall triangular prisms along the plaza's eastern edge. The prisms and glass walls would enclose a recording studio in the plaza. Above it is a new pedestrian overlook. The curving stairs on the plaza's west side would be replaced by a video screen showing sports events and movies.
