It hasn't been this cold in Chicago for this many days in a really, really long time.
Saturday unofficially marked Day 12 of daytime high temperatures below 20 degrees, tying an all-time record set in 1895 and matched in 1936.
That's right. We haven't seen such frigid daytime temps for 12 days in a row since 1936, and before that 1895.
While the cold snap is expected to ease with (slightly) warmer air slowly filtering in on Sunday, there's no denying the brutal cold the Chicago area endured. Here's a look back at just how cold it got.
P.S. The reward for the coming temperature rebound is a chance for flurries on Sunday night into early Monday morning that could leave behind 1 to 2 inches.
