LINCOLN (AP) – Forecasters warned that bitter subzero cold would grip Illinois through today, as the onslaught of arctic cold in the Midwest continued.

From central Illinois northward, temperatures are expected to drop into the minus zone, according to the National Weather Service, with wind chills of 15 below zero to 30 below zero foreseeable until mid-morning.

Forecasters said the weather pattern that’s brought the repeated polar chills to the Midwest is unusual and will set records in some spots. In central Illinois, most areas are on track to record one of the top 10 coldest winter seasons.

The official coldest winter results won’t be available until next month.
