CHICAGO (AP) - Illinois residents are bundling up against brutally cold temperatures that are expected to last for several days.
The National Weather Service says it'll get no warmer than 10 degrees in Chicago on Tuesday before falling to single digits at night. Meteorologist Matt Friedlein says temperatures will climb into the 20s on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. But winds are expected to pick up Friday night, sending wind chills close to zero.
Thirty-year-old Ariana Laffey is homeless and says she was wearing three pairs of pants and six shirts under her coat as she asked passers-by for money near Chicago's Willis Tower. Laffey says she and her husband slept under a bridge Monday, staying warm under six blankets.
They were trying to get enough money Tuesday to rent a hotel room.
