Dangerously cold polar air snapped decades-old records as it spread Tuesday from the Midwest to southern and eastern parts of the U.S. and eastern Canada, making it hazardous to venture outside and keeping many schools and businesses shuttered.Monday's bitterly cold temperatures broke records in Chicago, which set a record for the date at minus 16 Fahrenheit (minus 27 Celsius), and Fort Wayne, Indiana, where the mercury fell to 13 below F (25 below C). Records also fell in Oklahoma and Texas, and wind chills across the region were 40 below F (40 below C) and colder. Highs in the single digits F (minus 17 to minus 13 C) were expected in Georgia and Alabama, and wind chill warnings stretched as far south as Florida, with forecasts calling for minus 10 F (minus 23 C) in Atlanta and minus 12 F (minus 24 C) in Baltimore.Warmer temperatures -- at least, near or above freezing -- are in store for the Midwest.
