Above is a surface weather analysis of the Midwest as of 5 A.M. Red numbers represent air temperatures.

Frigid air has settled across the Midwest. Temperatures across the Chicago area are at, or just below zero. Biting northwest winds of 20 to 30 mph have lowered wind chill readings into the minus 20 to minus 30 degree range. 

Temperatures are expected to slowly fall through the morning hours, leveling off around 5 to 10 below zero through midday as polar air across Iowa and southern Minnesota continues to stream into the area.
