Chicago Will Be Colder Than Mount Everest, Antarctica, And Siberia On Wednesday
If you’re in Chicago then you might want to bundle all the way up because it’s about to get real cold this week! According to CBS, Chicago is expected to have one of its coldest days on record, with temperatures forecasted to reach historic lows which is often seen in some of the globe’s most coldest locations!
Chicago is expected to see a high of 12 below zero on Wednesday. It will be colder than some of the most frigid places on earth like the South Pole which is expected to reach a high temperature of 4 below zero on Wednesday, Barrow, Alaska, the northernmost point in the United States, located above the Arctic Circle, will be 7 below zero. Zackenberg Station, Greenland, which is also north of the Arctic Circle, will be 11 below, CBS reports.
National Weather Service meteorologist Amy Seeley said “If you don’t have to be outside, don’t.” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said the forecast could be potentially life-threatening but will have an all-hands-on-deck response from city agencies and community members to ensure everyone’s safety.
“While the snow may be ending, the cold is just starting,” Emanuel said at a Monday news conference. “Even if it’s not your parents and it’s somebody elderly in the neighborhood, please check on them if they need anything. If it’s beyond what you can do, 311, or if it’s more serious, 911.”
