The coldest air of the season will arrive in Chicago this week following a chilly weekend.

Daytime temperatures Tuesday through Thursday will struggle to reach 20 degrees with nighttime lows dipping into the single digits.

It will be bitterly cold on Monday night as the Dallas Cowboys come to town to take on the Bears in an NFC East contest at Soldier Field. Actual temperatures will fall through the teens during the game with the AccuWeather RealFeel® temperature heading for zero.

Another storm system may brush the area with snow by next weekend.
