The suburbs will be bitterly cold. Again. And we are getting close to setting a record.

The National Weather Service says temperatures throughout the Chicago area will hover at about zero through Tuesday and the wind will make it feel a lot colder. On Monday, the high is expected to stay under 10 degrees and there are reports that the wind chills have already fallen lower than 30 degrees below zero in some areas.
