It’s About To Get Very Cold In Chicago

It’s about to get very, very cold in Chicago. Wind chills Thursday night could drop into the negative 20s, and the middle of next week could be even worse.

The National Weather Service station in Romeoville is forecasting a record-breaking blast of cold air will hit the area by Wednesday.

The situation could be more dire that the polar vortex of 2014.

Morning Shift checks in on what Mother Nature has in store, and how you can keep you and your family safe and warm as the temperatures plummet.
