Chicago area businesses, schools close due to cold

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago area schools, businesses and events are being canceled because of the blast of cold weather.

The Shedd Aquarium in Chicago says it'll be closed on Monday because of the expected severe winter weather. The nearby Adler Planetarium also will be closed on Monday. Both plan to reopen Tuesday.

Cook County Clerk David Orr says an event promoting the state's new law that'll allow some 17-year-old voters to cast ballots will be rescheduled. It was set for Monday at Main East High School in suburban Park Ridge. However, the school has canceled classes. The event was to announce winners of the "Voting at 17" video contest.

Weather officials predict subzero temperatures for more than 48 hours this week.

Chicago Public Schools have canceled classes on Monday for about 400,000 students.
