    For the last week of February, the dangerous cold will continue in Chicagoland.

    Temperatures Thursday hovered in the single digits, as overnight lows dropped below zero. The record low for Friday morning of 0 F set in 1884 will be broken.

    Anyone outdoors during the evening hours will be at risk for cold-related illnesses such as hypothermia or frostbite.


    Chicago will have another chance of snow on Friday night. While accumulation will not amount to much, more snow is in the forecast for the weekend.
