Remnants of Super Typhoon Nuri were moving off the Japanese coast, and expected to reach Alaska’s western Aleutian Islands over the weekend. Next week, the storm will bring bitter cold weather to the Chicago area.
Chicagoans were hit with the coldest December temperatures in nearly 20 years on Tuesday, and the Wednesday morning commute could be a challenge as the area will get hit with more snow.
When a Greyhound bus dropped passengers off at a stop in Iowa, the station was closed, and an Illinois college student and other passengers were left outside in -17 degree weather for an hour. He was wearing only a sweatshirt and jacket.
With Chicagoans used to hot summer temperatures, it was a shock to the system to find temperatures in the 30s and wind chill values below freezing in some areas.
