The temperature at O'Hare International Airport hit the 18-year low around 12:55 a.m. Tuesday, National Weather Service meteorologist Gino Izzi said.

About two to four of inches of snowfall is expected Wednesday morning "in the heart of rush hour," Izzi said. Temperatures will "free fall" in the afternoon, hitting below zero Wednesday night.
