Extreme wind showers and coldest temperatures of the season en route to Chicago – NBC Chicago

The snow has stopped in many places, but Chicagoans won’t get a break from the winter weather just yet.

Arctic temperatures are expected to move into the region within a few hours. The lowest temperatures of the season are expected to occur on Tuesday night, according to NBC 5 Storm Team weather forecaster Paul Deanno.

Wind chill readings are expected to reach -15 to -25 degrees below zero, with possible -30 degrees in some communities.

The brutal cold will first hit Monday night, causing wind chills to fall below zero throughout the Chicago area. Communities west of Chicago will experience wind chills of -15 to -20 degrees through early Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Conditions will improve slightly during the daylight hours before possible wind chills of -25 to -30 degrees. Daytime high temperatures will be in the low to mid-teens, forecasters said.

And as if the bitter blast wasn’t enough, windy conditions offer another challenge.

The freezing cold will not go away immediately as highs are expected to be in the low to mid teens on Wednesday.

After the cold comes another chance of snow.

Snow is possible during the day and evening hours on Thursday, but temperatures will warm slightly. The high temperatures will be around 30 degrees, meteorologists said.
