Meteorologists at the Chicago office of the National Weather Service are forecasting falling temperatures that could have wind chills dropping to as low as 25 below zero Tuesday night.

A high of 14 degrees is expected Tuesday.

 

Experts suggest leaving water trickling in faucets overnight to help keep pipes from freezing.

Wednesday's forecast calls for highs in the single digits, but temps will rise overnight as another chance for snow moves into the area for Thursday, bringing temperatures that will top out in the lower 30s.

Friday's forecast calls for temperatures in the low 20s during the daytime, while temperatures could drop below zero overnight.
