But – South Pole warmer than O’Hare

[Ed. – Dude!]

At midnight, the temperature at O’Hare was 3 degrees below zero, which is as warm as the city is likely to see for the day, National Weather Service meteorologist Matt Friedlein said.

A temperature of 16 degrees below zero was measured at O’Hare Airport later in the morning, breaking the record of 14 below zero set twice in 1884 and 1988 on Jan. 6, according to the National Weather Service.

That’s colder than the South Pole in Antarctica, where the temperature was recorded at 11 degrees below zero at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station before 8 a.m.
